Mental Health – A Central Theme of SXSW 2021

Each year, the South by Southwest (SXSW) conference puts Austin, Texas center stage as it gathers great creative thinkers and doers from around the world – and each year, Intouch is there (this year, of course, virtually). This post is part of our series on the major themes our team saw arising from the thousands of sessions and speakers talking about health, tech, creativity, and innovation at SXSW 2021.

“It’s a comorbidity of existence in a pandemic.” That’s how Intouch EVP Angela Tenuta described the mental health challenges we’ve all been weathering over the last year. Statistics bear this out. So, too, do the views expressed by the speakers and sessions at SXSW.
