Consumer Health Forum Incubator GrantRecovery colleges improve the well-being and coping of its participants, while reducing reliance on health services. Preliminary efforts at adapting this approach to the needs of youth have been successful in Australia. The current program of research represents a collaboration between the University of Southern Queensland, the CHQ HHS CYMHS, and Education Queensland to evaluate the translation of the Youth Recovery College to an online program. Such digital mental health applications have been found to overcome several salient barriers to mental health care access. The benefits of an online Recovery College will be critically important for young people and their families referred to health services and those in the broader population to cope with the ongoing uncertainties and change.2021
