AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

How can we better identify and assess environmental and genetic/physiological risk factors that lead to child/teen stress?

There is tremendous pressure kids are exposed to. This results in an unusual number of children and teen age kids suffering from stress and depression, leading in some cases to devastating consequences. A study that could address to what level there are genetic predispositions to stress and depression and how it intersects with modern pressures and that will involve school, children and parents as cohorts, this could provide better tools for parents and mentors to identify children at risk.
