Major depressive disorder (MDD) is more than just feeling a little sad or having a rough day. If your child has MDD, his or her feelings of sadness can last a long time. Clinical research studies like the STEADi (Study To Evaluate an Adolescent Depression Investigational drug) clinical research study are done to find out if drugs are safe to treat MDD and to see if they work for children and adolescents.
Girls and boys who are 12 to 17 years old and have been diagnosed with MDD or who have been feeling depressed for at least the past 6 weeks may be eligible to participate in the STEADi clinical research study.
