Series 1: Session 5 Project ECHO Adolescent Mental Health

Depression in teens (Beyond the Basics)-Project ECHO Adolescent MH Series: Session 5

Through this series we’ve sought to lay the foundations of mental health assessment and basic management in adolescents. In this session, child and adolescent Psychiatrist A/Prof Sandra Radovini provides tips on asking young people about stressors, in both the past and present, that may be contributing to depressive symptoms. She continues to work through the “4Ps of formulation” in Psychiatry by describing common predisposing, precipitating, perpetuating and protective factors for teens experiencing depression and provides an overview of the first steps in medication management.
