Participate in the Dream On Study
Thanks for showing interest in participating in the Dream On Study.
To take part, we require every young person to get consent from their parents. To make this as easy as possible for you, simply copy and paste the below text into an email to your parents so that they can give you permission to be involved.
Your child has expressed an interest in participating in the Black Dog Institute’s Sleep project. We recently developed the Sleep Ninja mobile app to help young people with their sleep difficulties. We ran a study in 2017 with 50 young people aged 12-16, and found most teenagers liked the app and found it helped reduce their sleep problems. Participants also gave us valuable suggestions regarding how to make the Sleep Ninja more appealing, useful and suitable for them.
Since then, we have spent time making a new and improved version of the Sleep Ninja app, which is now available as part of a new study. We are currently recruiting young people (aged 12-16) to participate in this new study, called the “Dream On Study”.
If you would like to provide consent for your child to participate in the Dream On Study, or would like to find out more, please visit the study recruitment page here.
If you are interested in learning more about the work already carried out with the Sleep Ninja, please check out our research page on the Black Dog Institute website.
