Trial Design

2Treatment groups
Experimental Treatment
Placebo Group
Group I: Healthy Minds Program (HMP) GroupExperimental Treatment1 Intervention
Participants in the experimental arm will be assigned to the Healthy Minds Program Foundations training (HMP) which consists of 30-days of didactic and experiential content in a scientifically-derived model of well-being. A second random assignment will occur among intervention participants in which participants will receive the standard Foundations training or the Foundations training plus once per day push notifications (i.e., a micro-interventions) that provide a very brief opportunity to practice with the HMP content of that day. HMP participants will not be made aware of this second assignment.
Group II: Choice GroupPlacebo Group1 Intervention
Participants assigned to the Choice group will receive a list of digital (i.e., links to TED talks) and hard-copy (i.e., books) resources that focus on the science of well-being and may support well-being. It is up to participants whether and to what extent they choose to engage with these resources. A study library with 10 copies of each recommended book will be accessible to participants should they wish to read any of the suggested books. After follow-up testing, Choice group participants will be provided free access to the HMP training.
