Thank you for your interest in the Mood and Brain Circuitry in Adolescence Research Study!

If you are the parent of a child between 12 to 17 years old, your child may be eligible to participate.

This study is specifically studying teens with depression who are not currently taking an antidepressant or a mood stabilizer. However, we are looking for both healthy teens and teens with depression. Even if you’re not sure if your teen is depressed, they may still qualify to participate.

By filling out the form to the right, you are consenting for us to contact you to provide you with more information about the study. Completing this form implies no obligation to participate in the study if you change your mind. Your information will not be shared with an outside party or be used for any reason other than research participation.
