Overview

Everyone has to deal with stressful times. Sometimes dealing with hard times can cause you to feel down. REJOICE is a research study that wants to find out the best way to help people (1) recognize when they are feeling down and (2) learn skills that will help them deal with their mood.

Watch the video below to learn more about how REJOICE can benefit you.
