Can data shape the future of mental health support?

By Rich McEachran - 07 Sep 2016

Open data is being used to design resources for people with mental health conditions to help them find the right support.

Plexus is aiming to achieve just this. Built by the digital studio M/A, with funding from the Open Data Institute, the knowledge base is being used to design resources for people with mental health conditions, their families, and even employers, to find support available in local areas, seek advice on how best to cope with returning to work after a period off and understand employee rights and employer responsibilities.
