Depression in children and adolescents: Part 2

by Dr Raphael Kelvin

 

Last updated: January 2018

 

In this second module of our two-part series on depression in children and adolescents, we examine 'case management' (also mentioned in Part 1) with specific reference to medication. We also:

 

  • consider additional specialist talking therapies

 

  • take a closer look at the important issue of engagement

 

  • revisit the subject of psycho-education; an area we covered in more detail in Part 1.
