Led by Professor Rhonda Wilson and involving international and multidisciplinary networks of researchers and collaborating organisations, the Digital Mental Health Research Group is helping to reimagine the way technologies are used to enhance mental health care in Australia and worldwide.

From wearable technology, to social media, chatbots and gamification, this work combines the latest in technology with a steadfast, patient-centred approach that epitomises the best of nursing practice.
