If we care about health equity, we need to be willing to ask the hard questions. But up to 70% of published studies on digital mental mental interventions don’t even report on race or ethnicity (Kirvin-Quamme & Robinson, 2022). We need to do better.
At Twill, we started this process by exploring whether engagement, and the benefits of engagement, with our products depend on race/ethnicity by studying these effects in our real-world users.
