In our current world, though, many teenagers struggle with anxiety, depression, or confusion as well. Researchers are starting to learn about approaches that can help people of all ages, including teens. In this episode, we talk with Karen Bluth of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to talk about her innovative, evidence-based work to develop mental health tools for teenagers and their families.
