The Adolescent Development and Preventive Treatment program (ADAPT) is a research clinic associated with the department of Psychology and Neuroscience at the University of Colorado, Boulder. 

The program is funded by an R01 Grant from the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), and funds from the University of Colorado.

The ADAPT research clinic works with individuals between the ages of 12 and 21 who might be at risk for developing a thought disorder.


The purpose of ADAPT is:

  • To develop a knowledge base for the prediction of future thought disorders in adolescents and young adults who have symptoms that may signal the early stage of such a condition.

  • To understand how brain functioning changes over time in people who develop such conditions as compared to those who do not.
