Mental Health Futures: Contextual Normalcy

We need to build better tools for people living with mental health disorders and move beyond western thinking about normalcy by co-creating and crowdsourcing questions surrounding mental health. In this project we will use artificial intelligence to create alternative visions of normalcy, with this crowd-sourced data. We will present our collaborative research project "Contextual Normalcy", developed by members from our LA/SF based AI research collective Feminist.AI, and the XRStudio popup (located at Mozilla). Using speculative, interactive, and AI design practices, we discuss current challenges and vision alternative futures for mental health diagnosis and treatment. This panel brings together artists, designers and researchers to engage in mental health conversations.
