- The Wellcome Data Prize in mental health will support collaborative approaches to research into anxiety and depression in young people. Teams in the UK and South Africa will explore existing data to find new insights and build digital tools that enable future research.
- The Prize aims to generate tangible and scalable outputs that support the mental health research community. The overarching question for the Data Prize is:
- What Are the ‘active Ingredients’ That Make a Difference in Preventing, Treating, and Managing Anxiety and Depression in Young People? What Works, for Whom, in What Contexts, and Why?
- A key aim of this prize is to build a multidisciplinary mental health data community by bringing together people with mental health research backgrounds and data expertise.
- By mental health science we mean any discipline that uses evidence in rigorous and transparent ways, whether based on observation or experimentation. This could include:
- Disciplines within the humanities, social sciences and computer sciences, among others.
- Must be based in the UK or South Africa.
- May be at any career stage but must have a permanent, open-ended or long-term rolling contract, or the guarantee of one for the full duration of the award.
