Depression Screening and Management in Primary Care

One of every five teens will experience clinically significant depression during adolescence, but only half of these individuals will be diagnosed before adulthood. Of teens who have a depression diagnosis, only 50% will receive appropriate treatment. Some consequences of untreated depression include relationship problems, academic decline and failure, substance use and suicidal thoughts and behaviors. Partners For Kids’ depression quality improvement (QI) project assists practices with the implementation of universal depression screening for adolescents per recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics and supports the use of evidence-based treatment strategies within the primary care setting when clinically significant depression is identified. Learn more about how a QI project on depression screening and management can benefit your practice.
