Using YouTube to deliver mental health screening
Chief Investigator: Dr Kit Huckvale
What if YouTube could be used to help young people improve their mental health? You can help us find out.
At the Black Dog Institute, we are committed to exploring new ways to bring good mental health to everyone. Too often, young people deal with problems in silence. With new technology – and the help of people like you – we’re hoping to change that.
Our research is exploring different ways in which we could use YouTube for better mental health.

We need your help
We want to find out if some new ideas we have for using YouTube for mental health will work. To do this, we’re talking to a wide range of young people by running a series of focus groups.
If you’re aged 18-30, use YouTube regularly and would be able to come to a focus group at our Randwick campus then we’d love to hear from you. We’ll need about an hour and a half of your time, and we’ll cover your expenses.
It doesn’t matter whether or not you have a lived experience of a mental health issue: everyone is welcome!
It’s simple to take part
First, read through the Q&A - it’ll only take a couple of minutes. The Q&A explain what taking part will involve, how we will use what you say and your rights, for example, to withdraw from the study.
Register for a focus group
If, after reading the Q&A, you’re keen to take part, all you need to do is register.
