AI is set to infiltrate almost every aspect of our existence. Almost no corner of humanity will go untouched by its impact, with entire industries recalibrating their operations to make way for intelligent technologies. Artificial Intelligence that uses Machine Learning (ML), data analytics, Deep Learning (DL), Natural Language Processing (NLP), and computer vision algorithms will revolutionize many aspects of healthcare, but notably the mental health industry.

The scope of AI in mental health is huge, with BCC Research estimating that the market will grow at a rate of 34.3% over the next five years, reaching $3.8 billion by 2027. This is an astronomical figure that reflects an industry garnering more and more attention for its work in improving the health and well-being of the global population.
