Depression in Children and Adolescents
Davis, Noel M.
Journal of School Nursing, v21 n6 p311-317 2005
During the past 20 years, depression has been recognized widely in children and adolescents. However, even with what is known today about depression, many children and adolescents remain undiagnosed. Early recognition is imperative to prevent further episodes that may continue into adulthood. Depression in children and adolescents affects social development, academic performance, and ultimately, success as an adult. This article describes risk factors for depression, diagnostic criteria, medications, psychosocial interventions, and implications for school nursing practice. (Contains 2 tables.)
