Many researchers agree that stress can be a barrier to shared decision making (SDM) or person centered care. In addition, studies show that making decisions for young people (YP) with mental health conditions can be challenging as evident by low levels of parental SDM and agreement between parents, YPs and clinicians, for example, on reasons for attending services. My current research is typically based on the premise that parents and young people accessing mental health service is involved in a shared decision making process and thus, the parent can be considered as another service user. Therefore, parents need support in managing parental stress when their child is experiencing difficulties in order to be fully engaged in the SDM process. This research will be conducted in phases that will eventually lead to a cluster RCT. The general research question addressed will be to evaluate if an evidence-based app for parents can lower the stress barrier and promote SDM for parents of children in therapy. The findings of this proposed study will lead to informed support to promote SDM and enhance the overall lifestyle of parents and children accessing mental health services, by providing parents with the necessary support to be involved in their child’s physical, mental and social well-being.
