Friday June 7 2019 12 00 AM

This research study seeks to find causes and treatments of depression in teenagers. The study’s goals are to increase our knowledge of treatments for depression, and understand what changes occur in the brain when teenagers have depression. The study will also compare teenagers with depression to those without mental health diagnoses as they grow up. All evaluations, clinical assessments, research tasks, brain imaging, and inpatient (day or full hospitalization) and outpatient visits are free of cost. Both parents and teen must agree to the teen’s participation. Teenagers with depression are eligible even if they are taking medication. Teens are compensated for research activities. Schooling is provided during inpatient care. The studies are at the NIH in Bethesda, MD and enroll participants from the local area and from across the United States. Travel and lodging expenses are paid by NIMH.
