Teens age 14-15 invited to participate in mental health study

Genesis Vergara, a research assistant with the Child and Adolescent Mood Disorders Lab at McLean Hospital,  is involved in conducting a research study to improve the understanding of mental illness in youth.

At present, they are recruiting adolescents aged 14-15 years with depression or anxiety to participate in research designed to better understand brain connections and mental illness. Adolescent participants will be administered a clinical interview and self-report questionnaires, and eligible participants also will receive an MRI brain scan.

Please see the letter below from the director of this lab, Dr. Randy Auerbach, detailing the study. If you have any questions, please contact Genesis at 617-855-4290 or gvergara@mclean.harvard.edu.
