Development of the 'stay strong' iPad

 

Overview

This project aimed to develop and trial a structured mental health and alcohol and other drug use intervention using Indigenous specific content and imagery in a computerised (i.e. iPad application) format. The application (app) assists therapists to deliver a structured, evidence based, and culturally appropriate intervention to their Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander clients.

The project adapted the existing Aboriginal and Islander mental health initiative (AIMHI) stay strong care plan to create an accessible and visually appealing iPad app that is simple, intuitive and suitable for clinician supported delivery.

The developed app contains a number of steps and aims to help clients examine their lives and the impact of their substance use or mental health upon aspects such as relationships, health, work and future goals.

Individuals are asked to:
