Temporal variability of risk and resilience factors for mental health: TempRes

The project uses Ecological Momentary Assessment (EMA) to investigate temporal dynamics of mood and psychological distress with a special focus on loneliness and suicidal Ideation, and theoretically derived vulnerability and protective factors in a clinical and in a community sample.

The results will provide an empirical basis for the development of specific interventions to promote resilience in the population and in at-risk groups.
