A few months ago, we had representatives from MindTech come into both of our Involvement Centres to speak to our volunteers about their project on digital technology and research. They’ve now started the second phase of this project and are after your input.
They have a website with more information and a film on the first part of the project on the links below:
The project Digital Technology for Mental Health: Asking the right questions, led by NIHR MindTech Healthcare Technology Cooperative, has already carried out a wide reaching consultation to gather in questions about using digital technologies for mental health from people with personal experience of mental health problems and health and social care practitioners. They now need your help to start prioritising which questions are the most important.
To find out more about the project go to www.mindtech.org.uk/digitalMHQ
You can also view a short film about the project at www.youtube.com/watch?v=-jjodDAWZ5Q&t=7s
A second survey has opened to give people the opportunity to direct future research into digital technologies for mental health. We are interested in hearing from people with mental health problems, people who support/care for others with mental health problems and health and social care professionals.
We need your help to set the priorities for future research into Digital Technology for Mental Health. Please take part in this survey to select the 10 questions you think are the most important. It will take about 10-15 minutes and there are prizes to be won for taking part!
