Test a New Mental Health App

IWK Health Centre, PROSIT Lab


PROSIT is an online research study testing a new smartphone app. We are interested in whether an app can use social interactions and movements to predict mental well-being. We are looking for youth to help test our app! Who can Participate? We are looking for youth between the ages of 10-21 to participate in the study. You do not need to be diagnosed with a mental disorder to participate in the study. Everyone is welcome! Will you be reimbursed for your time? Participants will receive $20 for filling out the questionnaires and working with our app for two weeks. We will ask teens to fill out questionnaires and work with our app at three-time points during a 6 months window. So, if you complete the study you will receive $60. A bit about the PROSIT study: We will collect data on how youth interact with their family and friends using an app. Based on this data, we hope to identify youth at a high risk of developing a mental disorder. The goal is to identify youth at risk so early on that they can get help before they develop the disorder. Through the study, we aim to improve the prevention of mental disorders in teens. What about COVID-19? We believe that the COVID-19 outbreak can increase the risk of developing a mental disorder. Our goal is to reduce this risk; therefore, we are continuing our research. However, the safety of all our participants is our absolute priority. The PROSIT study is taking place completely remotely, everything will take place online or over the phone.
