Without a comprehensive strategy from the government to address the rising demand for mental healthcare in England, a generation of children and young people will experience longer wait times for their treatments and suffer a decline in their mental health.

This sombre warning comes from health professionals in charge of mental health services across the nation. They have noticed an increase in the number of people seeking help and treatment for their mental health, particularly children and teenagers, at a time when the NHS continues to struggle with a staffing and estates "crisis."

One in 35 individuals, or roughly the combined populations of Leeds, Bradford, and Wakefield, are currently on the 1.6 million-person waiting list for specialised mental health care.

What is Syndi?

South Bank Innovation’s Simulation for Digital Health (SimDH) programme is helping SME Syndi work towards reshaping the digital health world and you can help them to achieve their goal too.

Syndi is a remote monitoring system for those who are currently on the waiting list for NHS mental health treatment. It provides users with customised signposting based upon your responses to regular surveys.

Syndi is currently going through research study process. They are looking for people who are currently on an NHS Mental Health waiting list who would like some extra support before they start treatment.  

The aim of the current study is to evaluate the effects of sign posting on user's wellbeing. 

People participating in the current study will be assigned to either use the Syndi app for four weeks, or to a waitlist condition. There is a financial reward for taking part.

During the study, the research team will follow up with you to assess your wellbeing at set time points.
