Why Join a CBITs Study?

The Center for Behavioral Intervention Technologies (CBITs) is a research center at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine.

About 1 in 5 adults experience depression or anxiety during their lifetime. Despite this common experience, it can often be difficult to access care due to cost, transportation, and time limitations.

At CBITS Health we are passionate about using technology to connect people with skills and tools that improve psychological well-being and promote general health.

If you or someone you know experiences depression or anxiety, or you think you might be at risk, you may be eligible to participate in one of our paid research studies.

Input from study participants is incredibly valuable and helps make research better. By working together, we can help improve programs and tools for individuals with depression and anxiety.

How to Join

Joining our study is easy. Spend 5 minutes learning about our research and whether it may be a good fit for you. Please note that our studies are only open to US residents at this time.
