Money can’t buy happiness: A randomized controlled trial of a digital mental health app with versus

We compared brief (28-day) use of two versions of a behavioral economics-inspired digital mental health app, NeuroFlow: (1) the full app including financial incentives and nonfinancial behavioral incentives (treatment group) and (2) a version of the app with nonfinancial behavioral incentives only (control group). In our intent-to-treat analyses, in order to examine the primary outcome of app engagement, a one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) (treatment vs. control) was conducted, and to examine the secondary outcomes (depression, anxiety, emotion dysregulation, and wellbeing), a two-way repeated measures ANOVAs (treatment vs. control × baseline vs. post-trial) were conducted.
