Take part in a mental health support study

January 9th, 2017

REBOOT Notts is looking for volunteers for a study evaluating two online support tools for mild to moderate low mood/depression and/or anxiety.

The study investigates whether online peer support website “Big White Wall” is more or less effective in helping people when they are experiencing symptoms of depression and anxiety, compared to freely available online information from the NHS (Moodzone). Anyone aged 16+ with a Nottingham postcode can take part.

Participants who complete their research measures at every stage will be entered into a prize draw to win £100 of high street vouchers, from which there will be 30 winners. While participants are not paid, REBOOT hope that their involvement will enable them to access helpful information, record changes in their mood to help them understand how they are feeling as well feeling positive about taking part in research that will help local healthcare services to make informed decisions.

Sign up for the study.

REBOOT is a collaboration including the Institute for Mental Health and is made up of university researchers, NHS clinicians and most importantly members of the public who have experienced depression and anxiety. Find out more about REBOOT Notts.
