Major depression in adolescents is recognized as a serious psychiatric illness with extensive acute and chronic morbidity and mortality. There is a need for improved care for children and adolescents with mental health disorders, specifically depression. Recognizing this gap in clinical practice, a group of researchers and clinical experts developed Guidelines for Adolescent Depression in Primary Care (GLAD-PC) for the management of adolescent depression in the primary care setting. This activity will describe the medical guidelines, review screening and management strategies for adolescent depression and outline risk factors for adolescent depression and suicide.

Learning Objectives:
At the end of this educational activity, participants should be able to:
• Describe the diagnostic criteria and initial assessment of adolescent depression.
• Discuss medical guidelines, screening and management strategies for adolescent depression.
• Identify risk factors for adolescent depression and suicide.
• Determine the acute management and secondary prevention of suicide.
• State the current and possible future role of pharmacogenomics in adolescent depression.
