Getting young people involved to ensure they are at the heart of the project
We are looking for nine young people (18-25) with experience of using mental health services and technologies such as wearables (e.g. fitbit), social media (e.g. twitter, Facebook) or other technologies (e.g mobile apps) to form a new Young People Advisory Group (YPAG) to advise a research project looking at whether these platforms are acceptable to detecting mental health deterioration in young people.
