I’m a student. How can I get involved?

The UCLA Student Affairs office and UCLA Campus and Student Resilience are partnering with the Depression Grand Challenge to kick-start the Resilience Peer Network. Under the leadership of Elizabeth Gong-Guy, Director of UCLA's Counseling and Psychological Services and Associate Clinical Professor in the UCLA Psychology Department, the Resilience Peer Network will provide students with peer-to-peer counseling outside of a clinical setting. This program is scalable and has the potential to meet the deep need for mental health services at UCLA.

If you have mild-moderate Depression and mild-severe Anxiety, you may be eligible to participate. Visit https://depression.semel.ucla.edu/icbt-student/welcome to learn more.

To become a Resilience Peer, please contact: Dr. Elizabeth Gong-Guy at egongguy@saonet.ucla.edu.

 

I suffer from depression. How can I become a subject?

Progress towards the 100K study is continuing. As you can imagine, carrying out a successful 100,000 person study requires a lot of up-front preparation, including running smaller advance pilot studies to test out various elements of the full-scale study. For the next two years, the DGC will be engaged in these pilot studies, some of which will be open to external participants, and some of which will leverage already existing groups of subjects.

There will also be opportunities to enroll in the 100,000 Person Study after it launches, currently estimated to be in 2018.
