25 August 2017

Is your teenager currently accessing a mental health service for Anxiety or Depression?

We are seeking parents of adolescents to review a new therapist-assisted online parenting program

What is the research about?
The research aim is to review a new therapist-assisted online parenting program, designed to help parents with adolescents who are experiencing anxiety and depression.

Who can participate?
Parents or legal guardians who:

  • have an adolescent aged 12-17 years, who is receiving treatment for anxiety or depression from a mental health service.
  • have access to the internet
  • consider themselves proficient in English.

What does the research involve?
You will be given access to an online parenting program, with weekly access to a therapist via telephone. After the program, you will be asked to give feedback to a researcher via a telephone interview, which will last approximately 30 minutes. The interview questions will ask for your views on how useful the program might be for parents whose adolescents are experiencing anxiety and depression.

What are the risks and benefits?
The possible risks and benefits are outlined in an Explanatory Statement, which provides more information to help you decide if you wish to participate.
