SOVA Updates: First paper, Blogging and More!

“August rain: the best of the summer gone, and the new fall not yet born. The odd uneven time.”

―Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath

A few updates for August!

The first paper on the SOVA intervention has been published! This paper describes how we used human computer interaction techniques and stakeholders to inform the design of the SOVA websites. Check out the abstract at the Journal of Technology in Human Services and email us if you would like a full copy.

We are recruiting SOVA Ambassadors! These are young people age 14 to 26 who are interested in blogging for the SOVA websites. They receive compensation, can add helping with a research study to a resume, and we help them with topics and editing! Also, they get to connect with each other and other youth online to provide support for depression and anxiety. We think it is a win-win!


Check out our video for more information below and if you know any young people who may be interested they can check out more info here or just email us at
