Supporting youth mental health and wellbeing using online approaches: Current practices and future opportunities
This will be a hands-on workshop where participants will try out and contribute to the development of digital tools for youth mental health and well-being.
- Participants will be introduced to challenges and evolving directions in digital tools for youth mental health.
- Participants will engage with SPARX (an online tool for young people with depression) and explore issues around uptake and engagement of this freely available tool.
- Participants will engage with a working prototype of a Habits Beta app (digital tool to support resilience in young people) from E Tipu e Rea, the Better Start National Science Challenge, and will be invited to consider the direction the project is heading.
- Participants will be introduced to the design concepts for a digital tool for young people who have engaged in self-harm, and will take part in a real-life co-design 'sprint' to progress the development of a prototype tool.
