Limbix Spark Clinical Trial

Limbix has launched a research study to provide access to adolescent mental health resources during the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as to evaluate the effectiveness of our self-guided mobile app intervention, as compared to educational materials.

Study Overview

1. Schedule an appointment
You and your legal guardian (if under 18) will use an online calendar to schedule a virtual informed consent appointment with a study coordinator. This appointment will involve a video conference call during which the study coordinator will describe the research procedures, give you and your legal guardian (if under 18) time to review the consent form, and answer any questions you may have.
2. Use your assigned treatment for 5 weeks
After consent, you will confirm your study eligibility and be enrolled in the study. Study participants will either receive the mobile Limbix Spark intervention OR a mobile educational program about depression for 5 weeks. Participants and their legal guardian, if under 18, will complete a set of questionnaires before and after the 5 week study duration as well as brief surveys weekly during the 5 week study period.
3. Receive compensation
Participants will be compensated with a $25 gift card for completing the post-program questionnaires.
