Depression And Suicide Prevention (eBook)
Sobre o livro
Pediatric Collections offers what you need to know - original, focused research in a snapshot approach. Depression is a major health concern confronting children, teens, and young adults, and trends in suicidal ideation or attempts indicate worsening mental health problems for these age groups. With a shortage of mental health specialists, more pediatricians and allied health professionals find themselves on the front lines identifying depression and suicide risk. This collection provides evidence-based guidelines for identification, assessment, treatment and ongoing management of adolescent depression and outlines the importance of screening teens for depressive symptoms and suicide risk.
