Development of the 'stay strong' iPad



This project aims 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) will assist therapists to deliver a structured, evidence based, and culturally appropriate intervention to their Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander clients.

The project will adapt 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 will contain 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.

Once developed, the app will be trialled with mental health, substance use and other health service providers.
