Join a Research Study: Enrolling nationally from around the country

To find out if you qualify, email NIMH or call [TTY: 711].

Researchers hope to better understand changes in emotional reactions and assess motivation in people during this stressful pandemic. We hope to understand the way these changes are different for people suffering from anxiety or mood disorders, and people who do not.

Participation involves completing online questionnaires and a computer task twice (first time, and again in 8 months.) Participation each time takes about an hour. Anyone at least 18 years old can participate. Participation is voluntary, and you may withdraw at any time. Compensation is provided.
