About This Project
Depression is common among young adults and is a risk factor for suicide. Do young adults recognize the signs and symptoms of depression, and know what to do about it? What are the barriers? This online dissertation study focuses on young adults (ages 18-24) in San Francisco, and their opinions about getting help when it comes to mental health, especially depression. I hope my findings will contribute to future mental health programs and policies.
