Developement of in-situ intervention with socially assistive robots for youth at-risk of self-harm

We aim to understand if/how the existing Smart Toys prototypes could be—in future—incorporated into mental health treatment approaches for youth (aged 16-25) who are at-risk of self-harm; and what further research & user-centred design steps would be required to address the needs of users. **Collaborators:** Prof Marina Jirotka (Oxford), Prof Ellen Townsend (Nottingham)
