SpringboarD: A wellbeing project for people with type 2 diabetes
Diabetes can affect your mood and leave you feeling stressed from time-to-time. The SpringboarD project will find out whether an online self-help tool can help people with type 2 diabetes lead active, healthier and happier lives.
Chief Investigator: Associate Professor Judy Proudfoot
The study is being conducted by our researchers here at Black Dog Institute as well as by researcher at University of New South Wales and the University of Melbourne.

What does the study involve?
You will use one of two online self-help programs for 3 months. In addition, you will complete online surveys before and after using the program, and again 6-, 12- and 24-months later. Each time you return a completed survey, you will have the chance to win one of ten $100 gift vouchers.
We are recruiting people to participate in this study who:
- are 18–75 years old
- have type 2 diabetes (diagnosed by a GP or endocrinologist)
- have mild to moderately severe symptoms of depression
- have access to a computer with Internet access
- have a valid email address
- have a mobile device that is Internet enabled (e.g. tablet or mobile phone)
