Grant number: 1060477 | Funding period: 2014 - 2018

Abstract

Of the many apps now available, a few aim to prevent suicide or improve mental health. None of these has been properly evaluated. Indigenous people under the age of 35 are three to five times more likely to suicide than their non-Indigenous peers and have limited access to suitable support services. This project aims to trial a suicide prevention app designed with and for young indigenous people.
