THRIVE (Tracking Health and Relationships In Varying Everyday contexts) Study
COVID-19 Research Area(s): Culture, Mental Health & Wellbeing, Social Impacts
The THRIVE (Tracking Health and Relationships In Varying Everyday contexts) Study seeks to better understand how Canadians can maintain their wellbeing and social connectedness in times of social distancing. We recognize that these are extraordinary circumstances that require all of us to flexibly adapt. We are particularly interested in what distinguishes good days from less good days, to figure out what helps people thrive in uncertain times.
Participation includes a 45 to 90-minute online questionnaire asking questions about individual backgrounds, personality, social relationships, attitudes, and wellbeing. Then, for ten days, participants are asked to complete two brief surveys per day: one in the morning and one in the evening. These brief surveys capture participants’ unique contexts, their thoughts and outlook on the day, challenges that needed to be addressed, social interactions and experienced wellbeing.
