Development of supportive modules for an E-Health Blended Care Pathway


Project Description

This project will bring together researchers from the University of Liverpool and Oh My Mood, to develop an E-Health intervention for common mental disorders. Oh My Mood (https://www.ohmymood.com/) is a blended care pathway consisting of both contact with a mental-health professional and self-guided online intervention, developed for the treatment of common mental disorders. It focuses on a trans-diagnostic approach, by targeting the underlying cognitive, emotional and behavioural dysregulation which is common across different mental disorders. The main treatment strategies and techniques are grounded in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). Blended care pathways can overcome the limitations of self-directed e-health interventions, such as poor retention and lack of direct contact, and as a result demonstrate improved outcomes for depression and anxiety compared to contact-time only. Alongside the pathway, Oh My Mood aims to provide modules which can help individuals with the vulnerability factors that have a direct (reciprocal) link to mental health and the aim of this PhD will be to explore the evidence base for psychological interventions which target these factors.

The aim of the PhD will be to develop supportive modules focusing on reducing (1) alcohol misuse, (2) gambling and (3) unhealthy eating behaviors. The PhD will be a mixed methodology project and the successful student will develop skills in evidence synthesis, qualitative and quantitative analysis and conducting randomised controlled trials. Candidates should have an interest in health psychology and preferably have an MSc in Research Methods.

To apply for this opportunity, please send a CV and covering letter to Dr Andrew Jones on by the closing date.
