Welcome to Digital Technology for Mental Health: Asking the right questions



jlalogo transparent backgroundThis MindTech-led project is about people working together to find the top ten research priorities for digital technology for mental health. 


Online support groups, smartphone apps, computer games, virtual reality, virtual therapists, robots....so many big ideas emerging about how digital technology can be used for mental health. But what’s the best way to use the technology?

The ‘Asking the right questions’ project aims to decide the 10 most pressing questions about digital technology for mental health and share these with researchers so that future research targets these priorities. To make sure that they are grounded in the everyday experience of mental health, these questions will come from people with lived experience of mental health problems and health and social care professionals.

19/09/2017 - We've reached 100 action points!
Our last steering group meeting was on 6th September. At this meeting we recorded our 100th action point! Quite a list we have generated throughout the project. Our main business is still analysing and interpreting the questions that have been submitted to the project - it's an enormous task (I keep saying that!), but we're getting there. We're also turning our attention to the interim priorisation where we will ask people to select their own top 10. Keep a look out for further updates. 

Here's the notes from the meeting in July in case you want to keep track of the project.
