4D Constellation of Support Program The 4D team is pleased to announce the launch of the 4D Constellation of Support Program! Over a series of sessions in the 2023 Winter Quarter, content experts will provide faculty, staff and graduate students with both frameworks and strategies for caring for themselves, their colleagues and their students. Through participating in this professional and personal development program, individuals will be part of building a stronger, more resilient community and constellation of support in line with the holistic 4D model. These interactive sessions will focus on a range of relevant topics, including empathetic communication, inclusion/belonging, mentoring and mental health first aid.

One group we recruit will include people who are experiencing depression. The other group will consist of people who have never had any diagnosed mental disorder.

You will complete three in-person research visits, each including an interview about life experiences, a set of computer games, a blood draw and a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) brain scan. You will also select and use a CBD product for up to 6 weeks. The study takes place over the course of 6 weeks, and you will be compensated for your participation (maximum of $863–$1,038 for completing all parts of the study).
