Brief description This research is focused on testing new strategies to identify and treat severe forms of anxiety, depression and emerging bipolar disorder in teenagers and young adults. It works with ongoing data from over 4,000 young people seen at the Brain & Mind Research Institute and new youth services and other national data sets. It proposes that disturbances of the body clock underpin some major mood disorders and evaluates new behavioural and medical strategies designed that target the clock.
