The designs were to appeal to both students and teachers. It was to appeal to the students as the purpose of the programme is to give students the tools necessary to cope with and manage mild forms of depression (and to seek help should they need it). If the students didn’t engage with our design, the tools would not be used – rendering the programme useless.
The design also needed to appeal to teachers as the programme is not a mandatory part of the curriculum, so teachers need to request that the programme be carried out in their school. If teachers failed to book the programme, then the programme would not run. The below leaflet was handed out to teachers in schools to inform about the programme.
Below is a section of the workbook that the students would use as part of the programme.
We also developed an online resource using an existing structure created by SilverCloud Health. This allows the students to have the programme resources available to them wherever they are.
