ACTIDOTE is a self-help mobile application designed to promote health and prevent depression in University students.

The ACTIDOTE Project

Our research aims to evaluate the efficacy of a 5-week guided self-help smartphone-supported intervention (ACTIDOTE) in promoting mental health and preventing depression in a sample of students with mild to moderate levels of depressed mood. 

This project is run by the Health and Counseling Center of the University of Geneva, in collaboration with the Centre Universitaire d’Informatique (CUI) and the department of psychiatry at the Geneva University Hospital (HUG).
