    Details

    Eligible couples who provide informed consent will be enrolled in the study and will be randomized to either immediately start the 8-week SupportGroove program or be waitlisted for 8-weeks before starting the program. While actively participating in the program, couples will use the app to engage in daily "quests" (positive psychology-based activities to be completed on their own or as a couple). Both partners in the participating couple complete self-report assessments at baseline (0 weeks), 8 weeks, 16 weeks, and 28 weeks.
