dr. Y.A. de Vries


I am project leader for u-can-feel, a practice-oriented study of the development of anxiety and depression among secondary school students. In this project, we focus on the possible role of the school in the development of these problems. We aim to provide schools with more insight into how to support students with (beginning) symptoms of anxiety and depression.

I am also involved in various projects regarding the development of mental disorders during the life course, for which I use data of 150.000 participants in the World Mental Health Surveys. Due to my expertise regarding clinical trials of psychotropic medication, I am also involved in the Back to Bayesics project, which aims to improve statistical evidence in clinical trials.
