REMEDY is an interdisciplinary team of researchers who aim to use clinical psychology and neuroscience to improve the lives of young people. We focus on understanding and developing interventions for mental health concerns that commonly arise in adolescence, like depression, anxiety, sleep problems, and self-injurious thoughts and behaviors.
