Participants randomly assigned to this condition will receive the ADAPT platform (treatment) for a treatment period of 8 weeks.
Behavioral: ADAPT Platform (Treatment)
The ADAPT platform consists of 2 modules based on evidence-based strategies from cognitive-behavioral therapy including cognitive restructuring and behavioral experiments. The platform includes didactic material, interactive tools, and crowd-features. Crowd-features are present to increase personal relevance of content and to promote engagement with the ADAPT platform through accountability. Crowd-features include requesting, responding, and exemplars.
Active Comparator: Control
Participants randomly assigned to this condition will receive a similar self-guided platform (control) for a treatment period of 8 weeks.
Behavioral: ADAPT Comparison (Control)
The control platform is a self-guided version of the ADAPT platform that includes no crowd-features. As such it will include only didactic material on cognitive restructuring and behavioral experiments and interactive tools.
- Change in Depression at 16 weeks [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline to Week 4, Week 8, and Week 16 ]The primary outcome of symptoms of depression will be measured with the self-report Depression Anxiety Stress Scale (DASS) which produces a single score from 0-56 as well as subscores for depression that ranges from 0-56.
- Change in Anxiety at 16 weeks [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline to Week 4, Week 8, and Week 16 ]The primary outcome of symptoms of anxiety will be measured with the self-report DASS, which produces a single score from 0-56.
- Change in Diagnostic Status at 16 weeks [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline to Week 4, Week 8, and Week 16 ]A secondary outcome is diagnostic status as assessed using the Structured Clinical Interview for DSM-5 (SCID-5). Diagnostic status will also be used as a moderator of change in depressive and anxiety symptoms.
- Change in use of cognitive and behavioral skills at 16 weeks [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline to Week 4, Week 8, and Week 16 ]A secondary outcome is the Cognitive and Behavioral Response to Stress Scale (CB-RSS), which produces separate scores for frequency and usefulness of cognitive and behavioral skills. Scores for frequency and usefulness each range from 0-54.
- Change in Self-efficacy at 16 weeks [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline to Week 4, Week 8, and Week 16 ]A secondary outcome is the Coping Self-Efficacy (CSE), which produces a single score that ranges from 0-260.
- Change in Accountability at 16 weeks [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline to Week 4, Week 8, and Week 16 ]A secondary outcome is the Supportive Accountability Questionnaire (SAQ), which produces a single score than ranges from 7-91. The SAQ also produces scores of subscales including bond, accountability, and legitimacy.
- Change in Social Functioning at 16 weeks [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline to Week 4, Week 8 and Week 16 ]Functioning will be assessed with the Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) Ability to Participate in Social Roles and Activities Scale which produces raw scores from 8 to 40. These scores can be standardized to be reported as T-scores that have a mean of 50 and a standard deviation of 10.
