MyTeen Study

University of Auckland
Wanted: parents and caregivers of children aged 10-15 to take part in a text message study regarding positive parenting tips.

MyTeen is a research study being conducted by the National Institute for Health Innovation at the University of Auckland. The study aims to evaluate the effectiveness of a text-based mobile phone programme on supporting parents with teenagers (10-15). This study has been approved by the University of Auckland Human Participants Ethics Committee.

The project is an exciting opportunity for parents to receive brief supportive text messages including tips on positive parenting practices, self-care, and information on youth mental health. The programme is offered free of charge to parents.

The National Institute for Health Innovation (NIHI) is inviting parents/primary caregivers who are caring for a child aged 10-15 to take part in the MyTeen study. This study will examine whether a free text-messaging programme providing positive parenting tips and information on youth mental health is helpful.

All NIHI needs is an hour of your time over the course of three months to complete 3 online questionnaires. If you are interested in hearing more about the study please contact [email protected] or call 0800 367 6444
