The COVID-19 pandemic has seen greater attention paid to digital intervention needed to address anxiety and depression in society, said experts at an online conference held by NYU Shanghai on March 31.

The conference on digital mental health intervention brought together researchers and public health practitioners from eight countries from Asia, Europe and the Oceania region.

According to Pim Cuijpers, professor of clinical psychology at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, more than 50 percent of the world's population suffers from anxiety or depression, with Asia having the highest number of affected people.
