Dear Parent/Carer

The PIPA Trial


We are writing to you about The PIPA Trial which is being conducted by the University of Warwick. Bishop Challoner Catholic College are collaborating with the research team on this trial which is exploring the effectiveness of an online resource for parents/carers to help reduce depression and anxiety in young people.


Families of young people aged 11-15 years at Bishop Challoner Catholic College are being invited to take part (please note that your name and address details have not been shared with the trial team). Attached is an information sheet which will give you more details of the trial and what your participation would involve. We have also attached an information sheet for your child. Please note, the deadline given on the information sheet of the end of April has now been extended, so you can still sign up to participate in the trial.


If you have any questions about the trial and would like to find out more information, please contact the PIPA trial team using the contact details below. Miss R Hampson is the ‘PIPA champion’ for Bishop Challoner Catholic College and you can also speak to them about the trial.
