In this case study, we report on experiences, situations, and lessons learned from working on the MONARCA research project, completed in close collaboration with patients and clinicians from the Affective Disorder Clinic at the University Hospital Copenhagen in Denmark. We discuss aspects of the design, implementation, and evaluation of MONARCA, and summarise some of the key issues and challenges that presented themselves during our work, including:
• Recruiting and motivating mental health patients to participate in healthcare technology research;
• Challenges that occur during data collection, specifically with interviewing mental health patients; and
• Dealing with unintended and surprising consequences in healthcare research.
