Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction App for African American Caregivers

This study seeks to build on Phase I findings to incorporate research-driven enhancements into a prototype mindfulness-based mobile app for African American caregivers of people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA), conduct a feasibility trial of the enhanced app, and evaluate its effectiveness in reducing caregiver stress in a randomized controlled trial. If proven to be effective, the app could have a positive impact on the well-being of African American caregivers that serve as a critical pillar of support for many PLWHA.
