Research Studies Seeking Participants

Northwestern University’s Uplift the Web Challenge

The Uplift the Web Challenge brings academics and practitioners together in a collective effort to identify effective interventions to reduce depression in adults. With contributors’ help, we will gather promising short interventions. Then, we will rigorously evaluate them in one of the largest randomized experiments in the history of mental health research. While some existing depression interventions are in-person, time-intensive, and involve repeated exposure, we focus on short, scalable interventions that can reach millions of people.

Submit your idea for an intervention here by May 1, 2024.

International Survey of People who have had Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT) and their Family and Friends
If you are at least 18 years old and have had ECT at any point, other than the last 4 weeks, you are invited to take part in an anonymous online survey. We also invite family and friends to participate.This is your opportunity to share your experiences of this treatment, positive, negative or mixed. The survey takes about 30-40 minutes.
