Partner must have funding to pay for Neolth licensing and any other intervention funds necessary to implement their study. Neolth is open to academic partnerships that are related to the following scientific priorities: 

  1. Evaluate the impact of Neolth on mental health outcomes 

    1. Testing program efficacy 

    2. Exploring the optimal engagement with Neolth to improve health outcomes 

    3. Exploring mechanisms through which Neolth  improves mental health 

  2. Identify and evaluate the impact of integrating evidence-based behavioral strategies into the classroom 

    1. Testing program feasibility 

    2. Testing delivery models 

    3. Exploring the impact of Neolth on school culture and mental health stigma

    4. Exploring the impact of Neolth on classroom behavior, including academic outcomes
