Understanding the Impact of COVID-19 on Sleep and Mood: Online Study

Boston College, CANLab, Psychology & Neuroscience

You will first fill out the online consent form, followed by the demographics form. Then you will be signed up to receive the follow-up assessments planned for the duration of the study. In order to collect as much information as we can about factors that may be influencing your experience of COVID19, we will occasionally offer the opportunity to complete one-time survey assessments (typically 30-60 min). We will also occasionally have periods in which we send out daily surveys that ask you to report on characteristics of your sleep, stress, and mood, as well as screening for COVID-19 symptoms and diagnosis (typically 5-10 minutes). These daily survey periods will typically span a period of 2 weeks. All surveys are optional and you are free to discontinue your participation at any time.

Your Impact

Your participation will help researchers to not only reveal new information about potential risk and protective factors regarding COVID-19, but also help them to better understand how many of the large-scale measures being taken will impact us as individuals and a society.
