Research Roadmap

NewMind works with the NIHR MindTech Healthcare Technology Cooperative to explore the potential for technology to transform care for individuals with mental health conditions. Focussing on four broad clinical areas – Serious Mental Illness, Mood and Affective Disorders, Dementia, and Developmental Disorders – we have brought together researchers, healthcare professionals, service users (patients), mental health charities, and industry partners to co-develop plausible scenarios for technology intervention and identify the research challenges they pose.

This roadmap is one of the outputs of that process – refined over a series of multidisciplinary workshops, but still a work in progress. There are three components: a Health Outcomes Framework that provides a structured approach to describing the purposes of intervention; a summary of EPS Research Challenges that identifies key advances that will be necessary to deliver a transformation in mental health care; and an outline Ethical and Responsible Innovation Framework that sets out core principles which should guide researchers working in this field.
