Digital health
can help

This research study is comparing two interventions: “Cognitive Behavioral Therapy” (app-based) and a “Health and Well-Being Program” (web-based). We would like to find out which intervention is more effective for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). OCD involves uncontrollable thoughts and behaviors that can cause anxiety or distress and impact your daily life.

Many people with OCD are unable to get help because of their location, lack of available therapists, or the costs of treatment. We hope that developing and testing these digital health interventions may eventually give more people with OCD access to treatment.

Research study conducted by leading mental health clinicians.

These digital health programs are part of a research study at Massachusetts General Hospital. There is no cost associated with participation. This research study was approved by the Institutional Review Board.
