Understanding Cognitive and Developmental Neuroscience of Suicide and Non-suicidal Self-injury
Our project is dedicated to investigating the cognitive and developmental neuroscience aspects of suicide and non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI). We aim to contribute to the development of effective interventions and strategies that improve mental health outcomes for at-risk individuals while promoting overall well-being and preventing self-destructive behaviors among young populations.
Adolescent Health Enhancing Long-term Plan (A-HELP)
Investigate the prevalence of suicidal thoughts and behaviors among children and adolescents in China.
Explore the impact of diverse environmental and individual factors.
Examine the transmission of suicidal thoughts and behaviors on social networks.
Study the genetic characteristics of individuals experiencing these thoughts and behaviors.
Transdiagnostic digital intervention
Our project focuses on the development of a digital mental health online platform called "Redbud Mental Wellness." We have created a digital transdiagnostic intervention program, Training for Emotional Adaptation (TEA), based on the emotional regulation model and Internet-delivered cognitive behavioral therapy.
School-based Universal Prevention Program targeting Non-suicidal Self-injury
Recognizing the success of previous school prevention programs worldwide that have effectively addressed mental health issues, including NSSI, we aim to implement a similar approach in our project. Our School-based Universal Prevention Program targets the improvement of interpersonal relationships, emotion regulation, and interoception to prevent NSSI behavior and enhance the mental health of adolescents.
Group Therapy Intervention for Adolescents with Non-suicidal Self-injury
Our research focuses on evaluating a new group intervention for adolescents with non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI) and improving the availability of NSSI group interventions. We aim to address the growing issue of NSSI among adolescents and provide effective support.
Developing School Prevention and Intervention Programs Gatekeeper
This pioneering program, the first of its kind in China, includes digital-delivered components tailored for both primary and secondary school instructors.
The Life Gatekeeper program aims to enhance teachers' literacy, beliefs, skills, willingness to intervene, and perceived competence in dealing with students at risk of suicide.
