PARTICIPATE IN RESEARCH // DIGITAL TRIAL 

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Friendship Bench is exploring the use of digital platforms in the treatment of anxiety and depression using an evidence-based, problem-solving therapy intervention.

This is our #Covid19GoodNews

  • Talking to the FB Research Coordinator via telephone

  • Providing registration details and completion of a questionnaire

  • Downloading the Inuka App or alternatively receiving talk therapy over the phone

  • Registering on the App, making an appointment with a trained Friendship Bench peer counsellor

  • Being available for one-on-one online chat sessions; a session may last 30-60 minutes

  • At the end of each session, you will get an action card, with practical steps towards making positive changes

  • Plan a follow-up session to review what worked and take the next steps forward- this could include scheduling another appointment or continuing to take your action steps to wellness!

  • Have a 3-month follow-up with the Friendship Bench Research Coordinator
