The aim of the ECoWeB project is to develop a mobile application (app) called MyMoodCoach to help young people improve their understanding of how emotions work. The app focuses on boosting the skills of recognising, understanding, and managing emotions in young people aged 16-22.

What is the ECoWeB project about?

The project involves collaborators from across Europe, including the UK, Germany, Spain, Denmark and Belgium. In the UK, the trial involves the University of Exeter and University of Oxford. Researchers at the University of Oxford are interviewing young people to better understand their experiences of using the app. This will help us identify ways to improve the way the app is accessed and used and may mean that it is accessible to a greater number of young people in the future.

 PARTICIPATE IN THE Ecoweb in-DEPTH STUDY 

We are inviting some of the young people who are enrolled in the main ECoWeB trial to be interviewed so that we can know how they are finding the app. We are interested in what you like and dislike about it, so that we can make sure we learn as much as possible and can make the app better. It does not matter to us if you have used the app many times or only a few times, all of you will have some experience that will help us.

What will I have to do?

  1. We will ask you to fill in some short questionnaires about your mood and feelings, and demographic questions such as age, gender, ethnicity, and country so that we know as much as possible about the profile of the group advising us.
  2. We will ask to talk to you for 45 minutes to an hour about your experience of the app and what you think of it. The interviews will be conducted by telephone. 

As a thank you for your time to meet with us, we will send you a £20 Love to Shop voucher by email.

Participate in the ecoWEB PLUS STUDY

Alongside the main ECoWeB trial, researchers at the University of Oxford are recruiting a group of young people who are aged 16-22 years old from diverse backgrounds to use MyMoodCoach. We are particularly interested in speaking to young men aged 16 to 22 years of age who are currently not in education, employment or training in the UK and migrants in Spain. We are interested in knowing what you like and dislike about the MyMoodCoach app, so that we can make sure we learn as much as possible and can make the app better. 

Please note that you will be unable to take part in the ECoWeB Plus study if you are already involved in the main ECoWeB project trial.

What will I have to do?

  1. We will ask you to fill in some short questionnaires about your mood and feelings, and demographic questions such as age, gender, ethnicity, and country so that we know as much as possible about the profile of the group advising us.
  2. We will then give you instructions on how to download the free MyMoodCoach app. You will have access to MyMoodCoach for 4 weeks.
  3. We will also ask to talk to you for 45 minutes to an hour about your experience of the app and what you think of it. The interviews will be conducted by telephone. 

 What compensation will I receive for my time?

For using certain features in the app, it is possible to earn badges. For each badge earned (up to a maximum of three) you will be sent a £10 Love to Shop voucher by email. As a thank you for the time you spare talking to us for the interview, we will send you an additional £20 Love to Shop voucher.
