What is it?
IN-ROADS (International Network for Research Outcomes in Adolescent Depression) is a research project that looks into which outcomes (things that changed with treatment, like a person's energy levels or mood) matter most when treating youth depression. This project includes youth, family members, doctors and therapists. Researchers tend to measure outcomes that they think are important, meaning different researchers measure different outcomes.
- Create a core outcome set — a specific set of the most important outcomes of treatment — that includes the outcomes most important to youth.
- Use this outcome set as a standard to make sure that research is based on outcomes that really matter.
We ask that you:
- Are between the ages of 12 and 24.
- Have experience living with depression presently or in the past
- Have access to the internet and a device that can access Zoom.
- Be available for the online workshop between May and June 2021.
How you can help:
Our team is looking for youth to participate in a one-time, 90-minute virtual workshop between May and June 2021 to provide your opinion on the most important outcomes that should be included in this core outcome set. You will receive a $25 gift card for your participation.
