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

A scientific team (consisting of a research assistant and a researcher/clinical psychologist) at McLean Hospital is investigating brain network activity and emotion regulation in teens. They 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.

The team is hoping to better understand depression and what factors may put some adolescents more at risk for developing depressive symptoms. For more information, please contact Dr. Emily Belleau at 617-855-4245 or ebelleau@mclean.harvard.edu.
