The Department of Communication seeks research volunteers for a study on the communication interactions between children and their depressed parent. Participants must have grown up with a parent who has been clinically diagnosed with depression and be between the ages of 18 and 25.

The objective of this study is to help communication and psychology professionals provide better instruction on how the depressed parent and child can cope and talk in healthier and more effective ways.
