Designing, implementing and evaluating a youth mobile help-seeking tool-kit (ARC Linkage Project administered by Queensland University of Technology) (2017–2019)

This project will design, implement and test a novel model of integrated mental health service that links a new mobile interactive tool-kit for self-directed help-seeking with existing traditional helpline services for young people in partnership with Australia¿s largest youth counselling service, Kids Helpline. The project will investigate mobile technology in youth counselling and develop new understandings of blended traditional and mobile mental health interventions. It will design and evaluate a visual interactive mobile tool-kit that links credible health information to mobile devices, improving the quality and credibility of stand-alone digital interventions and service delivery to benefit the wellbeing of young Australians.
