Data science is a field that is fast evolving, and has the potential to benefit mental health research in a way that could change the lives of millions. Researchers come together to study the power of computers and the availability of big data to advance mental health research. Researchers explored current and potential applications of data science in mental health research using the UK Clinical Research Collaboration: underpinning research; aetiology; detection and diagnosis; treatment development; treatment evaluation; disease management; and health services research.
