Opportunities to support research to address local needs

Co-designing a peer coaching program (PiP-P2P) for parents of adolescents with anxiety and/or depression

TROPHI are supporting research by Professor Marie Yap and her team at Monash, which will design a parenting peer-coaching program for parents of teens with depression and/or anxiety.

The research team wants to make sure this program is useful for parents and teens and is currently recruiting representatives of these groups to participate in the co-design of the program. Participants will be invited to participate in one initial interview and/or to provide later feedback on the program design for a maximum of 3 hours total over the course of one year. For more information please see:



Results from this project will be shared with the TROPHI community!
