Can data science be a catalyst for improved mental health outcomes?

What puts someone at risk of mental illness? What are the early warning signs? How can we improve access to care?  These are the big questions that data science can help us answer.

Last year, leading scientists from MQ’s Data Science Group published an important paper in the Lancet Psychiatry outlining the major potential for data science to deliver a step-change in the way health care is provided and research is organised. 

Today, our fourth Data Science Meeting is taking place in Manchester, bringing together over 40 experts to leverage advances in the field.

Members of the MQ Data Science Group will be sharing updates on important initiatives underway and explore exciting scientific developments. Talks cover a wide range of topics: from the importance of statistics in genetics to understanding behaviours from wearable sensors. We're pleased to welcome members from The Farr Institute, supporting Connected Health Cities, an initiative to use IT and data to get patients better services and move the control over health information out of the clinic and towards the patient.
