Depressive disorders commonly occur for the first time during adolescence and often become a recurring source of distress and impairment. Unfortunately, only a small proportion of adolescents with depressive disorders receive help from professional services, and there is evidence that adolescents with higher levels of depressive symptoms may be less likely to seek help. This article explores factors that influence youth's help-seeking and gives suggestions for helping depressed youth.
