This chapter discusses interventions for adolescents with depression. Intervention in the school system for depression could include: primary prevention (for all teens in a particular school); secondary prevention (targeting teens of parents who are depressed, as these teens have a high risk of becoming depressed themselves); or tertiary prevention (targeting teens who test positive when screened for depression). It is highly recommended that the social worker and mental health counselors screen for depression in the school; unlike externalizing problems (aggression, acting-out behaviors) — which are better identified by a teacher or parent — internalizing problems, such as depression, are more accurately reported by the adolescent.
