• Do you know a teenager who is irritable, moody, and who isn't sleeping well?
• Is your teenager having trouble getting out of bed in the morning? Are they tired and out of sorts all day?
• Are they often tearful or sad?
Our group at UC Berkeley Mental Health is dedicated to improving treatments for teenagers with depression who also often have difficulties with sleep. Major Depressive Disorder is common in adolescents. Although talk therapy and antidepressants are often effective in treating depression in youth, many depressed adolescents continue to experience depressive symptoms even with treatment. Additionally, many youth experience insomnia or excessive daytime sleepiness. We are running a treatment study that targets this set of problems. Click on links to the left to find out more. Professor Allison G. Harvey directs this study. She is an experienced clinical psychologists who is licensed in the state of California. This research is funded by the National Institute of Mental Health and is conducted in collaboration with Dr. Greg Clarke at Kaiser Permanente Center for Health Research in Portland, Oregon.
