Olivia talks to Dr. Faith Matcham about her career in digital tech and mental health
Camhs.Digital is back.. and this time we were able to record our first in person episode!
You will hear Olivia Gorvett speaking to Dr Faith Matcham, an education and research lecturer working at the University of Sussex. Faith explores how digital technologies can support those with chronic illnesses, with a focus on the interaction between mental and physical health.
Among other things, we hear the two discuss the misconceptions of working in research, the rate at which technology is advancing and how not knowing what you want to do can lead to a very fulfilling career.
