Abstract:While there is demonstrated potential for behavioral intervention technologies (BITs) to improve access to beneficial mental health interventions, there is a continuing need for research to evaluate effectiveness of new and existing applications for specific population groups. This paper reports experience in developing a digital platform to support delivery of an ecosystem of online mental health screening and behavioral intervention technologies to promote the wellbeing of New Zealand youth. Key platform requirements center on identity management, usage and assessment tracking, and implementation of research protocol workflow. A reusable and scalable solution based on Web services is presented in the context of ongoing iterative development and end user studies. The platform is providing consistent research and service delivery support for multiple concurrent threads of the overall youth mental health program.
