Big White Wall, Big Black Box?

Big White Wall, Big Black Box?

What we are doing:

Related to the www.rebootnotts.com project, we are looking at the moderators (determinants) and mediators (mechanisms) of benefit in online peer support for anxiety and depression.

Why we are doing it:

There is some evidence that people who engage in moderate online forums benefit, perhaps through perspective-taking, but we do not know how this is linked to the kinds of conversations they have and whether we can predict who will and will not get better.

What the benefits will be:

Understanding who is most likely to benefit from engaging in online peer support and what kinds of conversations to encourage.

Who we are working with:

Big White Wall
