Wellcome Trust funding granted for mSootheBox app!

WellcomeWe are excited to announce that we have been granted funding from the Wellcome Trust iTPA ‘Access to Expertise’ Award, meaning that we will begin work on the development of our new digital health intervention for self-harm management very soon. Building on previous research from the Centre for Women’s Mental Health (CWMH), this project will focus on the creation of an Augmented Reality (AR) app called ‘mSootheBox’, which will help children and young people manage and prevent self-harming behaviors.

CAMHS.Digital will work alongside experts from Sparta Digital, as well as groups of children and young people in the role of Citizen Researchers, to design, develop and create an app which is effective and acceptable to the people who will use it. To find out more about the research and to keep up-to-date with its progress, please visit our ‘Our Work’ pages.
