Welcome to the Neurum Clara Research Project.
Clara: A Digital Mental Health Self-help and Support Service Project
Participant Consent Form
Hello from Neurum Health, and welcome to the Clara Research Project. In this research project, we are keen on investigating the effectiveness of mental health support and services delivered through a smartphone application. The groups we are interested in are adults (age 18 or above) who have stable, and consistent access to the internet.
You can visit our website www.neurumhealth.com and drop us a message via the contact form, or e-mail directly for an invitation to join. The smartphone app will contain mental health-related information, gold-standard screening questionnaires, and personalised exercises you can do at your own pace. We hope that you will find Clara helpful in gaining awareness and education around mental health and illness, and improvements and sustainability in your own mental health.
After the registration progress is complete via downloading the app and receiving a confirmation email, you can provide your consent electronically in the smartphone app itself during the onboarding process. Once you have consented and signed in successfully, Clara’s system will be able to kickstart the learning a recommendation system which aims to tailor mental health support and services to you.
This project is not funded by any external funding bodies and is a joint collaborative effort with the Hong Kong University (Department of Psychiatry, and The Experimental Psychopathology Lab). This research project’s principal investigator is Dr. Meanne Chan
