Mobile Cognitive Behavior Therapy Targeting Anxiety Disorders

Clinical Trial Details

This study is testing a new mobile app meant for treating anxiety in young adults.

This study involves downloading and using an iPhone app and receiving text messages. You’d be asked to use the app at least twice a week for 20-30 minutes each time. This study involves weekly assessments of your mood and anxiety while you use the app, and one follow-up assessment six weeks later. Participants are compensated $50 each for the baseline, midpoint, endpoint, and follow-up assessments, for a total of $200. There is also an option to complete two MRI scans at Weill Cornell Medicine, before and after using the app program, for an additional $200.

The app is based on cognitive behavioral therapy, an evidence-based treatment for anxiety. Interacting with the app involves watching videos about anxiety, practicing exercises to target challenging thoughts and behaviors, and using relaxation and coping techniques.

Key Eligibility: 
  • Ages 18-25
  • Primary diagnosis of an anxiety disorder
  • Stable medication dose for past 12 weeks
  • Not currently in cognitive behavioral therapy
  • No current active suicidal ideation
