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.

We hope these questions will help inform us about a vision for the future of mental health care and challenge the current way we deliver research, training, and therapy.

We will run a digital mHealth conversation every fortnight over the summer and autumn of 2019. These will be available to watch again in Onlinevents CPD Library

For each conversation, we will invite a panel drawn from a variety of therapy traditions, some of the Academy and Onlinevents team and some external guests.

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?
