CATCH PhD student enters Represent Your Research Competition

Matt Bennion entered his video in the Represent your Research competition. The video was created by him and his cousin Joshua Betts, a student at the University of Staffordshire.

The video gives a great overview of eTherapy and the problems that older adults have with using and accessing it.

Mental well-being is comprised of three key components emotional, psychological, and social well-being. Problems with mental well-being can occur at any point in our lives. 1 in 5 older adults have a mental well-being problem such as depression or anxiety.

Due to limited capacity, NHS mental health services are only capable of helping 15% of those who need help. To help combat this situation we need to offer patients more treatment options.

Look at the video to learn more about Matt’s research, how he will use “Manage Your Life Online – MYLO” created by Dr Warren Mansell at the University of Manchester, and his four studies that will be carried out at CATCH. This is part of the THAW project and will be supervised by Dr Abigail Millings, Prof Roger More and Prof Gillian Hardy.

You can view the video at:

The more hits the video receives the more chance Matt has of winning the competition as it’s based on how much viral impact it makes!
