Cardiovascular Risk Factors in Depressed and Non-Depressed Youth

The Children’s Integrated Mood and Body (CLIMB) Clinical Research Program looks at the relationship between mood and heart health in kids with depression. One of the ways to learn more about this connection is to compare kids with depression to kids without depression. This study compliments the work being done in the CLIMB Clinical Research Program by exploring differences in the biology of depressed and healthy youth.
