BITE BACK! Black Dog Institute

Hey Everyone!

Black Dog Institute, a medical research institute looking into mental wellbeing, created an app called BITE BACK to promote wellbeing and resilience within young people.

BITE BACK is Black Dog Institute’s FREE, self-guided online wellbeing and resilience program for young people aged 13 – 16 years old. Evidence shows that using BITE BACK can decrease symptoms of depression and anxietyand increase wellbeing.

BITE BACK uses a combination of fun, interactive activities, quizzes, animations and information across nine positive psychology domains including gratitude, optimism, flow, meaning, hope, mindfulness, character strengths, healthy lifestyle, and positive relationships. BITE BACK also provides information about the benefits of increasing wellbeing, strategies to develop skills in each of the positive psychology domains, and links to other relevant resources.

There are specific resources available for educators to utilise the program within health and physical education classes.
