Welcome to the website of the Child and Adolescent Anxiety and Mood Program (ChAAMP). We are a treatment research center dedicated to improving mental health care for youth anxiety and depression. Our primary goal is to develop efficient, effective interventions to prevent and treat child and adolescent anxiety and depression. The center is affiliated with the Department of Psychology at San Diego State University and directed by Dr. V. Robin Weersing. Most of our research takes place at our San Diego research clinic, located near the SDSU campus at the Alvarado medical complex. We also collaborate with other youth anxiety and depression teams around the country. We use a broad range of approaches (i.e. randomized clinical trials in research and clinical settings, surveys, psychological testing) to accomplish our program goals and serve families.
