We are recruiting parents and guardians who use Bark and MMGuardian for a two-part paid research study to learn more about their experiences receiving alerts that their child may be at risk of self-harm and suicide. We hope to use results from this study to design interventions to help parents and guardians navigate these alerts in the future. We are deeply invested in helping parents and guardians like you keep your children safe.
To participate in Project Anchor, you must be invited directly via Bark or MMGuardian after receiving an alert for your child. However, you may qualify for another opportunity led by our research team: Project Cares. Project Cares is a confidential online, one-time survey study that takes less than an hour to complete. Through this study, we aim to learn more about how parents and caregivers respond to their child's mental health difficulties. People who are eligible and who complete the study earn $10 for their time and are entered into a raffle to win one of ten $50 gift cards. To see if you are eligible or to learn more, click HERE.
