About four months ago, we started working on a joint initiative between the Scottish Government and NHS24 around how to deliver mental health services using new technologies. Called Project Ginsberg, it aims to reach about 20% of the Scottish population which are struggling to cope under stress.
It’s been a fasinating project. Luckily, we’re also getting the chance to work with some of the best in the digital world too, including Bryan and Stephanie Rieger from Yiibu, Chris O’Suillvan from the Mental Health Foundation and Ruth Stevenson from Ruthless Research.
We’re now looking at a stage where we’re looking for people to help us out with some focus group research. If you’re near Edinburgh and willing to take part, please get in touch in the link below:
Project Ginsberg is a collaboration between Scottish Government and NHS 24, to develop a digital platform that helps people to manage times when they feel distressed or have trouble coping, for whatever reason. At this early stage of development, we would like to invite you to participate in a focus group to help to develop our ideas and ensure they are relevant to the Scottish public. You would be paid £15 for your time. You can sign up here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/ginsberg‘
