Jacqueline R Hersh

Research Summary:
Broadly I am interested in researching psychopathology among adolescents, primarily depression and substance abuse.

Specifically, I am curious if/how these conditions manifest and present in various sub-populations. With that consideration, I am additionally interested in the possible need to tailor therapies to specific people such as diverse cultural groups or those with comorbid psychological disorders.
