For Teens Ages 13–18 And Their Parents

Teens ages 13–18 and their parents may qualify to participate in our studies. Participation typically involves a session in the CoPE Lab at Brandeis University, in which you/your teen would complete some tasks measuring thinking and remembering, questionnaires about mental health and life experiences, and interviews about mental health. These visits typically take 3-4 hours. Some studies involve a one-time visit, while for others we may ask you to come back for several visits over the next few years. Some studies also involve follow-up phone calls and/or online questionnaires.

Studies typically pay between $10 and $25 an hour.
