Idea for research
Idea for research
The Mix reaches over 5 million young people through social media each year. Our aim is to provide young people support via our social media; however, we do not have clear understanding of our impact via social media. We'd like to optimize our social media to improve in terms of service delivery and strategy.

For that we would like to find out more about how young people perceive our social media (e.g., Instagram, TikTok) and if (or not) helps them. How do our posts provide support and how does our audience incorporate it (what happens afterwards?).
Impact of idea
We expect that this research would help and support in a more impactful way young people. Therefore, improve our service delivery and create more effective way to tackle mental health issues.

We may help with recruitment for interviews (interviews) and advertising surveys via our channels. We also have metrics of our social media analytics that may help guide the research questions.

If you have any existing data or information you would like included in a project, please tell us what kind of data these are
