Full description:

We are developing a mobile app to improve care and support for young people with mental health problems. We will test the app in a controlled trial. There are two ways to get involved if you are a young person (aged 16 to 25) with experience of mental health problems. Firstly, we are holding focus groups in March to discuss ideas about the app, and how it might address barriers to service use. Secondly, we would like volunteers to test prototypes of the app and give feedback.
