Female teens ages 14-17 needed for depression study

Do you have a child between the ages of 14 and 17?

Our scientific team at McLean Hospital is investigating brain network activity and emotion regulation in teens. We are recruiting healthy teens, and also teens who have been feeling depressed or down. Your teen may be eligible!

Teens will answer questions about their thoughts and feelings. Teens will also undergo an fMRI brain scan. Parent permission is required. We are hoping to better understand depression and what factors may put some adolescents more at risk for developing depressive symptoms.
