About 20 percent of teens will experience teen depression before they reach adulthood. Less than 33 percent of teens with depression get help, yet 80 percent of teens with depression can be successfully treated if they seek help from a doctor or therapist, and many local health clinics offer free or discounted treatment for teens with depression.

The program includes information on pharmacologic treatments, drug interactions, patient counseling, and a question/answer period. Objectives: • Review the epidemiology, etiology, and pathophysiology of major depressive disorder in adolescents. • Compare and contrast the FDA approved pharmacological approaches to the management of depression to include efficacy, safety, and roles of available treatments. • Describe the role of pharmacists can have in identifying, educating and treating adolescent patients suffering from depression This webcast has been supported by an educational grant from Forest Pharmaceuticals Learning Objectives At the conclusion of this knowledge-based activity, the participant will be able to: • Review the epidemiology, etiology, and pathophysiology of major depressive disorder in adolescents. • Compare and contrast the FDA approved pharmacological approaches to the management of depression to include efficacy, safety, and roles of available treatments. • Describe the role health care professionals can have in identifying, educating and treating adolescent patients suffering from depression.
