The University of Sussex is conducting useability testing of new digital tools (for use on phones/tablets) to help children, supported by their parents/carers, to build mentally healthy lives, reducing the risk of mental ill-health. These were developed by Family Mental Wealth, funded by NIHR. Families with children aged 9-18 are invited to try them out, then complete a questionnaire about their useability.
