What is iTreAD?

The iTreAD project has been designed to help us work out what kinds of programs work best for people aged 18-30 years who experience low mood and binge drink.

If you are interested you first complete an online screening questionnaire to determine whether iTreAD is right for you. By completing the screening questionnaire you will be entered in a draw to win an iPad, regardless of your eligibility for the study.

If you are eligible, and interested in participating in the iTreAD project we will then ask you to complete some assessments when you first start, and 6, 9, 12 and 15 months later. These assessments, which are completed both online and via telephone, will take about 1.5 hours of your time. You will be offered a $20 JB Hi-Fi voucher at each time point as reimbursement for your time completing these assessments. These assessments ask questions about your experiences with binge drinking and/or taking other drugs and your experiences with depression (including previous and current treatments). We also ask you some basic demographic information, information about what health services you use, your mental health and wellbeing, your experience of stressful events and some general information about your quality of life.
