UCLA Integrative Study Center in Mood Disorders: Community Registry Study, Phases I & II

Project summary

The UCLA Integrative Study Center for Mood Disorders (IMDC) is studying factors that might increase or decrease the risk of experiencing recurring mood disorders. The main purpose of this study is to create a database “registry” of individuals who have a history of a mood disorder and who may have a family member with a history of a mood disorder. We would like to learn more about factors that help some people with mood disorders improve their health and wellbeing.

Participation is voluntary and all information will be kept strictly confidential.

If you volunteer to participate in this study, the researchers will ask you to:

  • Take part in a mental health interview.
  • Complete some questionnaires to assess factors that may be related to mood disorders.
  • Complete a second assessment 12 months after the initial assessment.
  • You may be contacted in the future about other research studies for which you may be eligible. You do not have to participate in any other study unless you want to.
  • You may be asked to invite a family member to take part by undergoing a mental health interview and complete some questionnaires. You may participate even if your family member does not.

Will I be paid to participate?

  • You will receive $60 in cash when you have completed the initial interview and questionnaires.
  • You will receive $40 in cash when you have completed the 12-month follow-up interview and questionnaires.
  • Your family member will receive $40 for completing an interview and questionnaires.
  • You and your family member will be reimbursed for parking costs in the form of a prepaid parking card.
