The ADVOCATE Study (Adolescent Depression: Video-, Online, Computer-Assisted Treatment Enhancements)

We are testing an online gaming treatment for teens with depression. It uses two new approaches: a videogame called SPARX and video conferencing (like Skype) to talk with an e-therapist who helps teens to use the SPARX information in daily life. We are currently recruiting teenagers for this study.  Learn more .
