One of the speakers at the event was Dr Gary O' Reilly from the UCD School of Psychology.  He spoke about Pesky Gnats! a computer game for children to play in therapy designed to make Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) more accessible.  Dr O' Reilly asks how generous should we be with technology based mental health interventions? (Watch video on Youtube)  Is it possible to make them available at little or no cost thus not just sharing our ideas in the spirit of TED but also sharing technology that allows us to promote good mental health in children.
