Abstract

Mental illness will afflict 1 in 4 young people by the age of 25, making it the greatest cause of disability in young people worldwide. Early intervention is the most evidence-based approach to improve the long-term outcomes of mental disorders. However, youth mental health services have major shortcomings that reduce their impact. The aim of this program of research is to evaluate digital interventions that dovetail with youth mental health services and enhance their long-term impact.
