Several areas of medicine are currently benefiting from the application of innovative data science and health informatics approaches, including mental health. The Medical Research Council (MRC) in the UK have the ambition to establish a UK-wide Mental Health Data Platform to drive research, innovation and clinical translation for mental illnesses. As a first step, in 2018 they awarded nine UK research centres initial funding to set up Mental Health Data Pathfinder Projects.
Here, Dr Jo Inchley, Dr Judith Brown and Professor Danny Smith talk about the valuable mental health big data research taking place at the University of Glasgow.
