Clinical Trial Summary

Background University students experience high levels of stress and this may negatively impact their mental health, coping and academic outcomes. Building resilience has been described as an ability to maintain mental well-being. Aims This study aims to (1) assess the feasibility of the Resilience Skills Enhancement (RISE) program, (2) evaluate the effects of RISE on undergraduate students' resilience, coping, emotion regulation, positive emotions and stress and (3) explore students' perception of RISE. Methods This study will be operationalized in three phases. Phase 1 - Feasibility A single-arm pre-post study will be used. 10 students will be recruited to explore their acceptability, perception, and suggestions for improving RISE. RISE comprises of six weekly sessions delivered via LumiNUS and Zoom. The Wilcoxon signed rank test will be used to analyse the data. Phase 2 - Randomized controlled trial A prospective, double blind randomized controlled trial and repeated post-tests will be used. A total of 122 students will be recruited from LumiNUS and social media platforms. Participants will receive a series of six, weekly online sessions in both groups. The primary outcome is resilience. The secondary outcomes include, coping, emotion relation, positive emotions, stress. Multivariate analysis of variance with repeated measures will be used to compare the mean difference of scores in the three time points through Wilks's lambda test. The data will be analysed according to the intention-to-treat principle. Phase 3 - Process evaluation A qualitative study using an individual, semi-structured interviews will be used to explore students' perception of RISE. Approximately 20 students will be recruited, and the final sample size will be determined based on data saturation. Thematic analyses will be used to analyse the data. Potential contributions This study will contribute by evaluating evidence-based user-friendly RISE that may be effective for enhancing university students' resilience.
