Digital revolution from the start of 21st century is changing significantly all fields of society, science and medicine. As Homo sapiens is a story telling or narrative being, people think in stories and narratives rather than in facts, numbers, graphs and equations. All big stories from the 20th century have collapsed and new narratives, including those on psychiatry and mental health, are emerging with a shift from a homo centric to a data centric world view. Emerging techno-humanism argues that Homo sapiens have completed their cosmic task and high technology is going to create a much superior Homo deus with upgraded physical and mental abilities. Dataism is promising to give all scientists a common language that easily enables them to get insights across disciplinary borders. Big data algorithms informed by a constant stream of data from biometric sensors could monitor our behaviour, health and disease 24/7. Collecting, analyzing, combining and applying large quantities of various data may help to get more precise diagnosis and more effective and efficient treatments tailored to individual patients and so promoting personalized medicine instead of block-buster and stratified medicine. Although personalized medicine is still in its infancy age, it opens up new possibilities for providing old dream “right care and treatment to the right person at the right time” into reality. It tends to increase resilience and optimize healthcare for every person at every stage of a disorder, from prevention to personalized treatment.

Four multidisciplinary sessions will be organized within the symposium with challenging topics:

  • Comorbidity, resilience, and epigenetics in psychiatry from the perspective of predictive, preventive and person-centered medicine (School of Medicine, University of Zagreb);
  • Transdisciplinary integrative approach in psychiatry, personalized medicine, and creative psychopharmacotherapy (School of Medicine, University of Zagreb);
  • Psychiatry, spirituality, and religion from the perspective of public and global mental health (Faculty of Philosophy and Religious Studies, University of Zagreb);
  • Psychiatry, ethics, and politics from the perspective of public and global mental health (Faculty of Philosophy and Religious Studies, University of Zagreb).
