REACH HPI will be working with Catholic Education WA (CEWA) and the Telethon Kids Institute to develop a new HealthKit-based Apple Watch app. The app, called Resilience, will be used as part of an initiative to investigate the strategies employed by school principals in coping with the demands of their high-pressure position. Specifically the app will record detailed health metrics over the course of a 22 week trial, while asking regular in-the-moment questions to explore stress levels, emotional wellbeing, lifestyle factors and coping strategies.

Over the past year, REACH HPI has been working in partnership with Telethon Kids Institute and Edith Cowan University to create a mobile app that forms the centrepiece of the CyberSavvy school initiative. This project is focussed on helping young people to be safe online, and to be aware of the consequences of social image sharing. It also provides resources, information and support contacts. The app, called ImageUp, is available now.
