Families Being Supportive Together

This project studies the different ways that caregivers respond to their teens when teens ask for support. The study focuses on youth with and without a risk of developing depression and anxiety. We study how youth ask for help from their caregivers and how caregivers respond in their daily lives by observing family interactions at home. The ultimate goal of this study is to reveal how modern families support their teens and how communication among immediate family members can impact stress, mood, and mental health.
