Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) Grant

Our team is also excited to announce that we have received funding from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC).

While social isolation has been known to contribute to poor mental well-being, few studies have examined why some youth may be experiencing problems in their social interactions. It has been theorized that the problem may lie in youths’ perception of social cues, limiting their ability to make behavioural adjustments in response to social stimuli.

With the help of SSHRC, our research will break new ground and determine whether attentional biases predict problems in social interactions and mental well-being among youth.

Our team is excited to announce that we have received funding from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research.

The rate of anxiety disorders has been increasing greatly, approximately 11% of youth in Canada suffer from the disorder. The most common treatment for anxiety disorders is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), although we do not know the effectiveness of CBT in youth. Our goal is to study responses from youth with anxiety disorders undergoing CBT, using a smartphone-based app to determine the objective predictors of the treatment response.

As PROSIT's one year anniversary approaches, we would like to thank the 2500 participants who have taken part in all of our studies this past year. Without your dedication, our research would not be possible, and you have contributed to further understandings of mental health during and after COVID-19.

A huge thank you to our collaboration partners and institutions working with us, students, research assistants, volunteers, those who maintained the server, app maintenance crew, and advertising team. We look forward to working with everyone in future studies and continuing to improve our app design.

This project aims to address the struggles and coping mechanisms of those with hearing loss amidst our current global state. We will seek those with any degree of hearing loss and ask that they complete a survey pertaining to their health during the COVID-19 pandemic and how social isolation variables may have altered their everyday lifestyle. Questions will be asked through various validated questionnaires and will address psychological well-being and functioning, as well as levels of loneliness, anxiety, and depression. While certain questions will be asked in a format indicating strong-disagreement or strong-agreement, other questions will be open-ended, allowing for written expression of concerns and opinions. A follow-up survey will be administered post-pandemic to see how participants' quality-of-life has improved (or if we should develop an online platform for these participants to connect, to ask if they implemented some of the ideas shared by others who face the same struggles). By sharing the information obtained from this study, we hope to encourage those who struggle with hearing loss by reassuring that they are not alone and to help them find their way to happiness and healthy living.

If you are 18+ with any level of hearing loss and would like to participate, please click the image above.
