We are recruiting chronically irritable and angry teens for the NIMH-sponsored research study Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT) for Youth with Severe Mood Dysregulation. The goal is to learn if IPT can help teens 12-17 years old that have an irritable or angry mood and outbursts. Participants may receive 24 weeks of treatment at Johns Hopkins and earn up to $135 each for guardian and child. If interested, please call Dr. Leslie Miller at (410) 550-9014 or email ROAR@jhmi.edu.
