The SENSE Study

Sleep and Education: learning New Skills Early

The ADAPT Team at the University of Melbourne is conducting a new research project called The SENSE Study for Years 7-10 students in high schools in the Melbourne Metropolitan Region. The study is exploring a new approach for the prevention of health problems by intervening early with teenagers to help them learn and sleep better through two new early intervention programs:

Sleep Sense Program- designed to teach students how to improve sleep quality, sleep duration, relaxation techniques and general wellbeing.

Study Sense Program- designed to help students improve their time management, memory and study skills, and to promote active engagement with their school work.

Below you will find more information about the SENSE study. If you or your school would like more information about the study or you would like to be involved, please do not hesitate to contact our team. Thank you for your help!
