The anxiety risk reduction condition will be a combination of psychoeducation plus Cognitive Bias Modification (CBM-I) for anxiety sensitivity (AS). The psychoeducational component will focus on the nature of stress and its effect on the body. Interoceptive exposure (IE) exercises, designed to correct the conditioned fear to these bodily sensations, will be explained and practiced.

- Anxiety Sensitivity Index-3 (ASI-3) [ Time Frame: Month 4 follow-up ]The ASI-3 is an 18-item self-report measure of anxiety sensitivity (AS). This scale was developed to provide a more stable measure of the three most widely recognized AS subfactors (cognitive, social and physical concerns) than the original ASI provides. Each subfactor is represented by six items. The measure has shown good psychometric properties.
- Beck Suicide Scale (BSS) [ Time Frame: Month 4 follow-up ]The BSS is a 21-item widely used self-report measure assessing a broad spectrum of behaviors and attitudes related to suicide risk, including suicidal ideation and past suicide attempts. It has demonstrated strong reliability and validity.
