​YETI Phone Study

The purpose of this study is to help researchers better understand why some teenagers develop psychotic symptoms, while others do not. Psychotic symptoms include hearing voices, having beliefs that other people do not share, or having difficulties concentrating and thinking clearly. To learn about this, we will study thinking patterns, stress responses, and social relationships. Researchers hope their findings will lead to better ways to prevent psychotic disorders in young people. Recruitment is currently ongoing!
