Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a debilitating mental health disorder that affects 1-3% of children and adolescents. The Division of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry at the University of Minnesota is offering a research study to youths with OCD to better understand the brain circuitry involved in the disorder, and how differences in brain connectivity respond to the FDA-approved medication sertraline. The study is funded by the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH).
We encourage you to explore our website for more information about OCD and the current study. Please contact the research coordinator, Elizabeth, at (612) 625-1632 or email@example.com for further information or if you have or know a child/adolescent interested in participating.
