Psychiatry Clinical Research Infrastructure (P-CRI) Healthy Controls Database
a database registry will be created for normal healthy controls. This registry will be used to screen controls who may qualify for an ongoing or future research studies that require healthy controls. When participants contact the researcher concerning our registry, we will ask if they would like to be added to a database, which would allow investigators to contact them in the future about possible participation in different studies. after an initial interview to determine the subject's basic eligibility he or she will be given an informed consent form, HiPaa authorization for use and Disclosure Form, and their notice of Privacy Practices. if needed, these forms will be read aloud to the participant. The participant will then complete a short demographic health questionnaire. if necessary, these documents will be mailed to the participant. The participant will fill out the questionnaire, sign the consent forms and mail back these items to the researcher, while retaining a copy of the HiPaa forms and Consent form for their own records. once the researcher receives those three items, the researcher will enter the data into the password-protected computer database and store the paper version in a locked filing cabinet.
Participants will be English-speaking men and women, between 1-70 years of age.
