Over 2017/8 MindTech and the James Lind Alliance identified the Top 10 questions for digital technology in mental healthcare, these were filtered down from an initial 1350 questions, submitted by people with lived experience and health professionals. It is their intention that these will guide the funders of research to ensure that future research is focused on answering these questions and that the potential of digital technology for mental health can be fully realised.

The Academy and Onlinevents are so inspired by these questions, and the reasoning behind them that we have decided to use them as the focus for a series of structured conversations hosted by The Academy and Onlinevents on the future of digital mental health care. This will include both online therapy and digital impact on face-to-face therapy.

Each conversation will centre around a series of structured questions related to the theme of the DigitalmHealth Conversation.

  1. What is the research evidence based around how people diagnosed with depression deal with technology?
  2. Do people be treated for depression use digital technology (e.g. for social media) more frequently than those that are not diagnosed with depression?
  3. Are there particular interventions which are more effective for working with people with depression?

I'm a Dane who is curious about life, different ways of living, and have been educated and worked in five different countries in the world.

I am a holistic Counsellor and Career Coach, who uses person-centred counselling next to solution-focused counselling. I also work with breathing exercises and have a creative approach with use of art therapy.

I have worked with counseling, coaching, and career guidance for mainly students and young people for nearly ten years now. I have a Postgraduate Diploma in Career Guidance, Master in Arts & Guidance, and Master in Counseling and Psychotherapy. I am also an educated Art and English Teacher for foreigners.

I just finished the General Certificate in Online Counseling and Psychotherapy with distinction.

Dr. Carole Francis-Smith


I am a counselling psychologist working in private practice. I currently provide therapy and supervision both face-to-face and online, run trainings for therapists considering working online (and other mental health/staff resilience areas), and business coaching for therapists setting up an online practice. My doctoral research was in the Online Therapeutic Relationship from which I also became fascinated by online communications in broader contexts, especially where these impact on the work of therapists and the experiences of clients. I'm an advocate of Compassionate Mind training/Compassion Focused therapy and have recently been taking a look at what can happen to compassion when communicating in online contexts. The Netiquette guidelines I produced are in the process of being adopted by the Compassionate Mind Foundation as good practice.

About Philippa Weitz


I am interested in the success of the online therapeutic relationship, security, confidentiality, & jurisdiction as well as the use of virtual reality and artificial intelligence in therapeutic settings.

Most of all, I want to inspire therapists to simply go beyond turning on their webcams and thinking that is online therapy. There is such an exciting world out there for the online therapist ..... as big as the capacity of our mind to explore beyond what we are comfortable with.

So, what are my formal roles?
