While well-established treatments exist for adolescent depression, estimates suggest that 80% of adolescents with depression do not receive appropriate care. Initiation of timely treatments is crucial since youth with depression who do not achieve remission are more likely to relapse and have more impaired long term functioning.

This webinar will explore using the continuum of care model to effectively track and increase the proportion of youth at risk for Major Depressive Episodes (MDE) who receive prevention interventions, and to track the youth currently experiencing MDE who are linked to care and show symptom remission.
