Project brief

The aim of this research project is to develop guidelines for parents and carers on how to prevent depression and anxiety disorders in their adolescent and young adult children that can be widely promoted in the community and to some targeted groups.

The guidelines will provide parents and carers with strategies to reduce the adolescent’s risk of developing depression and anxiety. beyondblue will then disseminate these guidelines to the wider community. It is also intended that the guidelines produced will be used to inform an online parenting intervention for parents to help their adolescent child avoid developing a mental health problem.
