Study Summary

BounceBack Now (BBN) is a self-help, trauma-focused mental health mobile app with automated assessment with treatment guidance and in-app evidence-based treatment support for depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), sleep difficulties, and anxiety. BBN contains many of the necessary components to promote self-management of these conditions. We will evaluate the apps feasibility and acceptability among underserved patients (e.g., African Americans and patient with lower socioeconomic status) with trauma histories in an integrated primary care (IPC) setting. There are two specific aims: 1) to develop educational materials for patients and behavioral health providers for BBN in IPC, and 2) to conduct a pilot trial of BBN for patients with trauma histories in an IPC setting. To achieve Aim 1, we will conduct focus groups with behavioral health providers and patients to obtain feedback about BBN and training materials. For Aim 2, a feasibility study with 15 patients will be conducted to identify and address any procedural issues and to refine the protocol before conducting the full-scale study.

Michael Gill holds a Bachelors of Science in Integrated Science and Mathematics from McMaster University. During his degree he devoted considerable time modeling the pharmacodynamics of promising drug candidates. Since then, he has leveraged this knowledge of the investigational new drug ecosystem to help his father navigate clinical trials for multiple myeloma, an experience which prompted him to co-found Power Life Sciences: a company that helps patients access randomized controlled trials.
