How can technology help people with mental health problems?

How can technology help people with mental health problems?

– Online support groups, smartphone apps, computer games, virtual reality, virtual therapists, robots….so many big emerging ideas 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 they are grounded in the everyday experience of mental health, these questions have come from people with personal experience of mental health problems and health and social professionals. We’ve brought all these ideas together into a long list of 130 questions.

Now we need your help to reach a top 10!

Take part in stage 2 of the project to pick your top 10 questions – it will only take a few minutes and there are prizes to be won!

GO TO SURVEY

What will happen after the survey closes?

The survey will close mid-February 2018 when we will count up all the votes for each question. The 25 with the most votes will be discussed and debated in a workshop in March 2018. People with personal experience of mental health problems and health and social care practitioners will work together and jointly decide which are the top 10 most pressing questions.
