Project Description

Depression in kids and teens can lead to a loss of interest in regular activities, irritability and changes in daily habits including eating and sleep.

Depression in Kids and Teens

Depression in children and/or teens can present itself in various ways. If your child has lost interest in their extracurricular or social activities, has had changes in their appetite or eating patterns, sleep or academic performance, seems withdrawn, irritable or has self-harmed they may be experiencing depression. Clinical depression may vary in its severity. It is important to identify and treat depression as soon as possible to prevent its development into a chronic problem.

Cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) is a structured, practical, and effective intervention for individuals suffering from depression. CBT is the most well-studied psychological treatment for depression and has the most consistent evidence to support its use. Moreover, there is evidence that CBT  reduces the risk of relapse relative to those individuals that are treated with drug therapy.
