Additional Study Information: We are conducting a research study to explore discrimination around depression and barriers to care in youth ages 14-18. We will use what we learn to create videos to reduce such discrimination. Parental permission is required for this study. Adolescents (ages 14-18) will participate in an individual interview that will be approximately 45 minutes long. We will ask questions about discrimination regarding mental illness and thoughts about a video that we created to reduce discrimination towards individuals with depression. The interview will take place remotely using HIPAA-compliant Zoom. Participants will be compensated $25. Parental permission is required for this study.
