Maintaining Long Term Adherence to BRIDGES Protocols

mHealth Apps, also known as Mobile Health Applications, refers to the “use of mobile and wireless technologies to support the achievement of health objectives,” according to the World Health Organization. This project aims to support the BRIDGES protocol developed by the REACH Institute to aid at-risk youth in learning and practicing skills such as conflict resolution, goal planning, and healthy coping mechanisms. By creating a mobile health application that catalogues and extends the interaction with BRIDGES core content, the long-term adherence to BRIDGES can be improved among the youth participants.
