The discovery, interpretation and sharing of meaningful data patterns in mental health could drive diagnosis, monitoring and treatment. However, for this, some profound privacy and security concerns among patients and clinicians will need to be addressed. Issues of information governance and data ethics will be especially to the forefront.

This theme will consider the implications of data regulations on such things as the personalisation of complex interventions. However, regulation alone will not deal with concerns arising concerning some of the most private data assets, such as in-home video cameras used for activity recognition. We will therefore focus on technical responses, such as system architectures that permit compartmentalised and truly private data analytics.

A workshop has been planned for October this year (2019) and a call for projects will be launched subsequently.
