Year 10 – Smooth Sailing

This year, Gymea Technology High School will be taking part in a research study for student wellbeing. This voluntary study is being run by the Black Dog Institute, University of New South Wales. As part of this study, students in Year 10 will be invited to answer some questions about their mental health in class time, privately on individual computers. Participation is entirely voluntary.

Students will then be given access to an online program developed by the Black Dog Institute called Smooth Sailing. This program provides information and activities to help students cope with worry, stress, and feelings of sadness. Students can use Smooth Sailing in their own time for up to 12-weeks. After using the program for 6-weeks and then 12-weeks, students will be asked to answer questions again. This will help the researchers determine whether the program has been helpful. All students’ answers remain confidential and will be stored only at the Black Dog Institute. If a student reports that they are experiencing severe depression or thoughts of suicide during the study, they will be immediately referred to the school counsellor who will then follow usual school protocols.
This study will help us to ensure students are being cared for. For more information about this study, visit: https://blackdoginstitute.org.au/information-for-parents1. If you have any questions or concerns, or you do not wish for your child to participate in this study, please contact your School Counsellor, Catherine Manning or Principal, Peter Marsh. Alternatively, you can directly contact the research group with any questions by emailing smoothsailing@blackdog.org.au or calling Dr Bridianne O’Dea on 02 9382 8509
