Empowering your mental health

Join Syndi Health's research study | September 2022 - March 2023

About the research study

South Bank Innovation’s Simulation for Digital Health (SimDH) programme is looking for people who are on a mental health waiting list to take part in a research study.

SimDH is working with Syndi Health who are testing a remote monitoring system for anyone who is waiting for mental health support. It provides users with customised signposting based upon your responses to regular surveys. 

The aim of this research study is to evaluate the effects of sign posting on the user's wellbeing.

Participants will be assigned to:

  • Use the Syndi app for four weeks; or
  • A waitlist condition

During the study, the SimDH research team will follow up with you to assess your wellbeing at set time points.

You can receive up to £45 for taking a part in the study. 

This research has received ethical approval from London South Bank University's Ethics Panel: ETH2223-0034

Please read the eligibility criteria carefully before applying to take part in the research study:

Man on mobile phone with headphones-portrait-1
  • Live in the UK

  • Aged 18 or over

  • Currently waiting for mental health support

  • Have internet access

What to expect

If you choose to take part, we will ask you to complete a series of surveys that measure your mood and wellbeing. Each will include questions about how often you have been bothered by a number of problems over the past two weeks, as well as some more general questions about your life.

The SimDH team will email you with a link to access the Syndi app to use for four weeks. The Syndi app also includes guidance on how to use it, along with signposting to resources based on your responses.

The research team will contact all participants after two and four weeks to complete additional follow-up steps.

If you are placed on the waiting list, you will get the app at the end of the four-week testing period. After starting the study, you may also be invited to a voluntary one-to-one interview.
