We’re harnessing the power of data science, to illuminate our understanding of mental illness.
Mental health data science has huge potential in the near-term to drive forward research and lead to major improvements in care and treatments.
Which is why we’re taking a leading role in this field – funding a major new award, launching the MQ Data Science Group, and curating a growing list of resources for researchers.
Applications to our 2018 data science are now closed - you can find out about the successful projects here.
The MQ Data Science Group
In 2016 we launched the Mental Health Data Science Group (PDF), bringing together experts from the world of mental health. They’re focused on mapping the data science landscape, championing this field, and finding new ways to improve the availability and use of data for mental health research.
The group have already published papers in the Lancet Psychiatry and Nature Human Behaviour, outlining the opportunities and barriers to mental health data science.
If you would like to find out more about the group contact our Science team.
Data science policy development
We've worked with partners in the health research space to support a positive policy environment for data science. Most recently we partnered with the AMRC to promote safe access to health information for research.
Data science resources
There are lots of opportunities to get involved in the programme. Get in touch if you would like to partner with us, or find out more about the Mental Health Data Science Group.
