PhD- project

Promoting wellbeing: A randomized controlled trial of the Five Ways to All intervention

This project is funded by DAM Foundation and is a cooperation between The Norwegian Council for Mental Health (NCMH) and PROMENTA research group. Low-cost and evidence-based health promoting public health tools are urgently needed in Norwegian municipalities, to meet both current and future challenges with mental health and wellbeing.

Our aim in this randomized controlled trail is to test if a shorter, digital version (The Five Ways to All), of an already established course (Hverdagsgledekurset), can promote wellbeing and mastery in the general population. We will investigate to what extend the effects are short-term and long-term (i.e., 3 and 12 months).
