Research Study on Depression in Same-Sex Couples

Are you a woman over the age of 18?

Have you experienced feelings of depression?

Are you currently in a romantic relationship with another woman?

If you answered “yes” to these questions, you and your partner may qualify to participate in a study about how you cope with feelings of depression. Participation will take place in three parts: (1) Screening Survey, (2) Baseline Survey (approximately 40 minutes) and (3) 14 day daily-diary (approximately 15 minutes/survey).

Participants are eligible to receive up to $38.00 per person ($76.00 per couple) in the form of an gift card.
