Feeling Stressed?

The Stress & Resilience Study will begin in early 2023!

The goals of this study are to understand how childhood experiences and current stress affect your physical and mental health, and what can be done to increase your resilience. Together, we can work to improve the lives of all Californians! 

Plus, you can earn up to $254, receive a free smartwatch worth $350, a free stress report, and take part in a no-cost 12-week stress management training course depending on your eligibility.

This study is being conducted by UCLA, Stanford, and UCSF in partnership with the Office of the California Surgeon General and the California Initiative to Advance Precision Medicine.
