PIPA Trial


An online parenting intervention to prevent affective disorders in adolescents


Why are we doing this study?

Depression and anxiety have a very large impact on the health and wellbeing of young people. For many people, they first start in early adolescence, so efforts to intervene early or to try to prevent depression and anxiety in this age group are extremely important. Researchers have tried to design ways to improve adolescent mental health by working with young people directly; but approaches that target the parents or carers to try to address parenting skills also appear to reduce depression and anxiety in their adolescent children, both in the short and long term.
