The Orygen Adolescent Development Study (ADS) is a prospective longitudinal study that aims to address core questions regarding biological and environmental risk factors for the development of depression and other psychopathologies with common onset during adolescence. The study is based at Orygen Youth Health Research Centre, with the Melbourne Neuropsychiatry Centre a key collaborator. The study began in 2003 and has been running for almost 10 years. We have established a cohort of 237 Australian adolescents, who were selected from a wider community sample (approximately 2500, from 100 representative primary schools around metropolitan Melbourne, Victoria, Australia) to encompass a wide range of temperamental risk for later emotional problems.
