Please meet SOVA and WiseSOVA

Greetings!

We are super excited to have both our SOVA site as well as its sister site, WiseSOVA .  Feel free to check them out, but please don’t try to register on the site – still working out some tweaks!  Before we get started with unraveling  our projects, we wanted to give you a taste of how we plan to use each site.

SOVA

Our plan is to create a peer network of adolescent and young adults (AYA) with a history of depression and treatment that are interested in helping other adolescents currently struggling with depression and trying to decide whether to get treatment.  We would like  to develop a repository of AYA-created personal stories and education that we can use to continuously update the website design.

WiseSOVA

Similar to the SOVA site, our plan is to create a peer network of parents interested in helping other parents with adolescents with depression.  We will be developing another repository of parent-created personal stories and education.

Periodically, we will also ask for feedback on some of our latest website-related projects:

  • Testing of possible website designs
  • Forming a user community
  • Creating content for the website
  • Participating in a satisfaction survey on SOVA involvement

 

We hope to start recruiting interested peers in the beginning of March and will continue to update you and ask for your valued input on how this process is going!

We are looking forward to having you on board and can’t wait to start collaborating!

We Are Going Live!

After months of hard work and research, we are thrilled to announce that we are finally going live!

We will be using this site to post updates on our project, share the latest findings in mental health research, distribute relevant articles we find compelling, and keep you abreast of any upcoming events we hear about. Coming soon, we will be posting various projects to the site that we would love your help with.  All of our collaboration can be done right through the site.  For quick updates on what we are working on, follow us on Twitter @sova_project.  If you’d like to be on our mailing list, please email us.

Starting Out

untreadedterritory

Hi everyone! Welcome to the first blog post on the sovaproject website. Our research team is going through some untreaded territory but we are very excited about where this new path will take us. Personally I’m most excited to be able to use this site and update you all on a regular basis with what our team is working on. Thanks to WordPress for being such an awesome user friendly content management system to use! I remember when creating my own website seemed like something I would never be able to learn. Now anyone can communicate and share important research like this! I am looking forward to the days to come and your future involvement!
