How do adolescents cope with the Corona-crisis: a smartphone study

Project summary

During the Corona-crisis, adolescents (age 12-25) are vulnerable for psychosocial problems such as anxiety, depression, and loneliness, especially when stress accumulates.

This interdisciplinary project aims to:

1) Gather data and disseminate real-time scientific insights into emotional well-being, stress, and coping

2) Support adolescents to actively cope with stress to prevent psychosocial problems

To this end, adolescents play the serious game GROW IT! They record their real-time well-being and daily stress. In teams, they are challenged to actively cope with Corona-stress.
