TEXTBITES is a text message healthy lifestyle program for young people aged 13-18 years. I am seeking support to recruit participants. Participating in a research study aligns with many aspects of the curriculum and can be used a learning tool.
The aim of TEXTBITES is to support improvements to their eating, physical activity, mental wellbeing and general behaviours. Young people also have the option to communicate with a health counsellor to receive more support. The study runs for 12-months with the text message program running for 6-months and 6-month follow-up phase. Study assessments are all conducted online and on the phone.
