Research from Veronique Dupere in Reuters
New research featured in Reuters.

Reuters covers research from PRC visiting scholar Veronique Dupere on depression and dropout risk in teens. The study, published in the Journal of Adolescent Health, finds that older teens struggling with depression are more than twice as likely to drop out of high school as peers without that mental illness or those who recovered from a bout of depression earlier in life. The researchers emphasize that understanding that current or recent depression raises dropout risk may encourage schools to put a higher priority on mental health services.
