Black Dog to launch massive trial of inoculation ability of apps
The Black Dog Institute has received $2.18 million in funding to run a trial involving 20,000 teenagers to see whether mental health apps can prevent depression in adolescents.
Dubbed the ‘Future Proofing’ trial, it will test whether mental health apps can effectively ‘inoculate’ Year 7 students from developing depression after 12 months.
