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.

  1. Participants will be introduced to challenges and evolving directions in digital tools for youth mental health.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
