Where are we up to?

Since October 2015, 238 Victorian families have been invited to learn about the Calm Kids study, and 134 families participated in a screening survey to check for eligibility. Of these, 47 families reported problems with anxiety in their child and 41 of these families have joined the project.

Our participating families are all at different stages of the project – some families have just joined the project, while others have completed their final follow-up!

We will be inviting more families to learn about the Calm Kids study over 2017 and 2018. We hope that 187 more families will join the project.
