A randomised controlled trial of a relationship‐focussed mobile phone application for improving adolescents’ mental health. The Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry, 61(8), 899-913. https://doi.org/10.1111/jcpp.13294

Course Description: Relationship problems have a bi-directional association with the development and exacerbation of mental illness among young people. Many of the characteristics and behaviors symptomatic of mental illness in youth, such as increased social withdrawal, low self-esteem, heightened worry or fears of others, separation anxiety, and excessive reassurance-seeking, can negatively impact young people’s capacity to further develop and maintain healthy relationships with friends and family. The study aimed to investigate the acceptability and effectiveness of a relationship-focused mobile phone app for improving mental health outcomes in adolescents. Researchers found that the WeClick app was effective for improving wellbeing alongside general and professional help-seeking intentions for mental health problems. The high rates of adherence, engagement, and positive feedback indicate that this type of intervention is acceptable for improving mental health outcomes in youth and should be further examined.
