Study: Latin@/Hispanic Teens and Depression
Researchers at the Duke University School of Nursing are conducting a study to better understand what prevents Latin@/Hispanic teens from getting depression treatment when they need it and what programs healthcare providers can provide to help improve Latin@ teens’ engagement in depression treatment.

You may be eligible for the study if you:
1. Are a healthcare provider who regularly provides clinical care to Latin@/Hispanic adolescents with depression
2. Serve in a role in which you can refer to or provide depression treatment
