Designing for Inclusivity and Accessibility of Mental Health Technologies

This research explores the accessibility and inclusivity of mental health technologies, mainly focusing on how the perspectives and experiences of university students of diverse cultural backgrounds, visible minorities, and international students can inform more inclusive designs.
