The Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences of Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine welcomes research volunteers to participate in studies aimed at improving the diagnosis and treatment of schizophrenia, Alzheimer’s disease, depression and anxiety.
We strive to reach out into the community in which we work to improve the public’s understanding of psychiatric illness, and to reduce the stigma that has been associated with mental illness in the past.
Each research group listed has multiple studies for you or a family member and you will be paid for your time.
