Prevention Of Depression In Adolescents

Depression among adolescents have been reported to be between 7 and 9 percent. This is a significant problem, as depression in this group has been associated with increased risk for academic failure, interpersonal problems, suicide attempts, and legal problems in adolescent. Despite this, few studies have focused on rural adolescents and depression. Thus, knowledge with regard to prevalence, intervention and prevention effectiveness is limited. However, some studies have given us some indication that there is need for further investigation among this population.
