The ADAPT Team at the University of Melbourne is conducting a new research project called The SENSE Study for Years 7-10 students in high schools in the Melbourne Metropolitan Region. The study is exploring a new approach for the prevention of health problems by intervening early with teenagers to help them learn and sleep better through two new early intervention programs:
Sleep Sense Program- designed to teach students how to improve sleep quality, sleep duration, relaxation techniques and general wellbeing.
Study Sense Program- designed to help students improve their time management, memory and study skills, and to promote active engagement with their school work.
The SENSE Study is a valuable opportunity to better understand how sleep, mood and self-regulation (study skills) impacts adolescent wellbeing, mental and cardiovascular health.
This research project is available to PhD students to join as part of their thesis.
