SME (Sharing, Mind, Enjoyment) App, A Pilot Project is part of the Community-based Mental Wellness Project for Adolescents and Adults, which aims at promoting sharing, mind and enjoyment and enhancing mental wellbeing. The Mental Wellness Project is financially supported by the Health Care and Promotion Fund from Food and Health Bureau and led by the School of Public Health, University of Hong Kong (HKU).
The major subjects of SME (Sharing, Mind, Enjoyment) App Pilot Project RCT Study are 300-500 students. 2 schools will be included in the evaluation. Schools will either be assigned to app intervention group or waitlist control group. There will then be 4 assessments (pre-intervention, immediate post-intervention, one month and three months after) to evaluate the effects of the intervention programme. In the assessments, students will be asked to complete a questionnaire to measure the changes in parent-child interaction and SME (sharing, mind and enjoyment) of families, knowledge and attitude towards the mental health problems.
HKU team will conduct evaluation during the programme implementation stage. The effectiveness of the intervention, as well as the level of participation and ratings for the intervention, will be evaluated.

Experimental: Intervention school
One school workshop and a small talk were conducted first at the beginning of the programme, which was to promote SME and introduce the function of SME App for students, followed by downloading and using immediately to connect family members, then let them continue to use for one month with system reminder.
Behavioral: SME App
The features in the App could be used in the future by linking with some platforms / existing services so that more SME messages can be sent to the students for sharing. One school workshop will be held to promote SME and introduce the function of SME App for students to download and use immediately to connect family members.
SME App promotes SME via:
No Intervention: Waitlist control schools
The intervention won't be provided during evaluation period and will be provided after the evaluation period
- Changes in the concept of Sharing, Mind and Enjoyment (SME) for adolescents and their family members. [ Time Frame: T1: before the SME App workshop (baseline); T3: 1-month after baseline; T4: 3-month after baseline ]The outcome-based questionnaire will be used to evaluate participants' frequency of performing the suggested Sharing, Mind and Enjoyment (SME) related behaviours from baseline to three-month after baseline.
- Changes in the knowledge and understanding about mental health for adolescents and their family members. [ Time Frame: T1: before the SME App workshop (baseline); T2: immediately after the SME App workshop ( post intervention ); T3: 1-month after baseline; T4: 3-month after baseline ]The outcome-based questionnaire will be used to evaluate participants' knowledge and understanding about anxiety disorder from baseline to three-month after baseline.
- Changes in personal happiness from baseline to three-month after baseline [ Time Frame: T1: before the SME App workshop (baseline); T3: 1-month after baseline; T4: 3-month after baseline ]Personal happiness will be assessed by Subjective Happiness Scale (SHS). SHS was rated on 7-point scale with 1 indicating not happiness at all and 7 indicating extreme happiness. To score the scale, the 4th item will be coded reversely and mean of the 4 items will be computed.
- Changes in mental well-being from baseline to three-month after baseline [ Time Frame: T1: before the SME App workshop (baseline); T3: 1-month after baseline; T4: 3-month after baseline ]Mental well-being will be assessed by validated Chinese version of 7-item Warwick Edinburgh Well-being Scale. Each item ranges from 1 to 5 and the scale will be scored by first summing the score for each of the 7 items and then transforming the total score for each person according to a conversion table.
- Changes in individual and family health from baseline to three-month after baseline [ Time Frame: T1: before the SME App workshop (baseline); T3: 1-month after baseline; T4: 3-month after baseline ]Self-perceived health, happiness and harmony at the individual and family level will be assessed by a 0-10 score at 3 time points
- Satisfaction toward SME App Project [ Time Frame: T2: immediately after the SME App workshop ( post intervention ); T3: 1-month after baseline; T4: 3-month after baseline ]Satisfaction towards the workshop, short interactive talk on SME and SME app will be assessed by programme evaluation measure
- The social impact of the community-based engagement project [ Time Frame: T4: 3-month after baseline ]The social impact of the community-based engagement project will be The satisfaction, ratings and opinions on SME App programme of school principal/teacher/community partner in the intervention group will be assessed qualitatively (individual in-depth interviews)
