MindTrails is an evidence-based program designed to help people think differently about situations that make them feel anxious. The program is free as part of a study funded by the National Institute of Mental Health and has been completed by people of all racial and ethnic identities from many countries around the world. The program focuses on anxiety that people may experience regarding social situations, physical concerns, work, and COVID-19 (including populations with generalized anxiety, social anxiety, and panic disorder, and high anxiety that isn’t part of a disorder). We welcome all eligible adults to participate in MindTrails. We also note that our program has not been studied as a tool to help people cope with trauma, including racial injustice and discrimination, or violence to yourself or others. We encourage individuals coping with trauma to seek out other resources, such as the APA's PTSD guidelines for patients and families and the National Alliance on Mental Illness's resources for coping with racial injustice and discrimination.
We're a team of psychologists, engineers, and computer scientists from
the University of Virginia who are working together and using the latest
research to build new programs to reduce anxious thinking.
