'Effective e-therapy engagement, and improving Maori families early environment’ Prof Sally Merry

We are delighted to have the opportunity to talk to Professor Sally Merry, the Cure Kids Duke Family Chair in Child and Adolescent Mental Health, and the Head of the Department of Psychological Medicine, University of Auckland, New Zealand.

We talk to Sally about her key research focus which is on e- therapies, and in-depth about the award-winning computerised intervention to help adolescents with depression 'SPARX'. Sally discusses the effectiveness of digital programmes comparing offline and online, in relation to CBT when it comes to keeping young people engaged. She also explains about the development, implementation, and scalability of these therapies aimed at prevention, and improving outcomes in young people. 

We also hear how her research is improving the early environment for very young children in families facing social, and economic, challenges, which includes working with Maori families.

Plus her important role in teaching and workforce development in the child and adolescent mental health sector, and what more needs to be done to help recruitment and retention.
