Why is your research important and how will it influence the understanding and treatment of MS?
This research will provide important information about a new and promising approach to the psychological care of people with MS. Historically, people living with MS have been expected to seek separate clinical care when experiencing poor mental health and wellbeing, even if related to their MS. However, most people face significant barriers trying to do so (e.g., lack of trained clinicians, high costs, mobility issues). This research is important as digital psychological treatments have the potential to overcome many of these barriers and may be a feasible and sustainable new model of care.
