What, how much and for whom? The measurement, prediction and benchmarking of mental health outcomes.

This area of my research activities is concerned with the outcome of treatments for mental health conditions. If we could personalize treatments for mental health conditions we could help more people with the same resources. To do that, we need to be precise in our measurements, have accurate statistical models and we need ways to benchmark clinical results with gold standard outcomes from controlled studies. We also need to understand how we use our limited healthcare resources wisely, and use methods that give us most “bang for the buck”, meaning cost-effective methods.
