Bidirectional Influences Between Adolescent Social Media Use and Mental Health

Note: There is both an R01 and an R21 (Clinical Trial Optional) announcement for this FOA.

Letter of Intent Due Date: February 24, 2023

Application Due Date: March 24, 2023


"Adolescents have increasing access to and spend an increasing amount of time engaging in online social interactions and consuming content on social media platforms, yet there is limited knowledge of how online social behavior and experiences interact with adolescent mental health and risk for psychopathology. The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to encourage applications that focus on understanding bidirectional relationships between social media use and adolescent mental health, psychiatric symptoms, and risk or resilience for psychopathology. This FOA seeks shorter, higher-risk R21 grant applications, whereas its companion funding opportunity RFA-MH-23-115 seeks R01 grant applications proposing longer term projects with supporting preliminary data."
