Study into reducing family stress seeks participants

Has stress been a problem for you and your family? Are you concerned that your child may be at risk for stress-related problems such as depression or anxiety?

The Helping Families Cope with Stress Study aims to promote children's healthy adjustment by teaching your family about the nature and effects of stress, providing information that may strengthen your parenting and reduce feelings of depression and teaching your children coping skills to deal with stress.

To be eligible, parents must have a history of depression and a child between the ages of 9 and 15. Compensation for you and your family will be provided for completing interviews and questionnaires.

If you are interested and would like more information about the study and how to find out if your family is eligible, go to familycoping.org.

If you are ready to see if you might be eligible for an interview you can do so by answering questions on our confidential pre-screening survey Initial Confidential Online Survey (https://redcap.vanderbilt.edu/surveys/?s=8ybnK6FUKV).

You can also schedule a phone interview online from that site, or contact  familycoping@gmail.com or call 615-450-0326.
