Mental health in data

Mental health in data

The UK Data Service collection houses over 9000 data sets. These range from nationwide longitudinal studies to international data, from current and historic census data to the latest data around covid-19 studies. We want to help connect the dots for everyone involved and impacted by the data, from researchers and producers of data to policy makers as well as the public and those whose responses and lives often generate this data.
The large range of research that is done using data from the Service collection gives us scope to explore almost any topic, but we have decided to focus this year on several “Impact Themes”. One of these themes is the area of mental health and wellbeing.

Mental health in data brings together a broader evidence base of the use of data in the collection and will build a narrative of this impactful work. We will be sharing several pieces throughout the year via our Data Impact blog and case studies which focus on the area. If you or your organisation would like to contribute a piece, please get in touch with us.
