Does your child have major depressive disorder?

Updated on 23 November 2020


Does your child have major depressive disorder?


If your child is 12 to 17 years old and has been diagnosed with major depressive disorder (MDD) or has been having feelings of depression for at least the past 6 weeks, he or she may be eligible to join the STEADi (Study To Evaluate an Adolescent Depression Investigational drug) clinical research study.

The study is being done to find out if an investigational drug is safe and if it works for adolescents with MDD. The drug is currently FDA-approved in the United States for use only in adults. The study will last for about 10 weeks and there will be about 9 study visits.

This study is enrolling at our Plano location (Plano Parkway @ Tollway) at Dr. Sejal S. Mehta’s offices (Psychiatric Medical Associates, P.A.). Call Research Across America at 972-4-DOCTOR (972-436-2867) to see if you may be eligible for a screening visit.
