Depression and other mental health conditions in adolescents are becoming increasingly common and can be a significant source of suffering and family stress. What relationship does digital media use have with depressive disorders in youth? What are the risk factors for developing depression, and what prevention and intervention strategies can parents, caregivers, educators, and clinicians employ to help children experiencing or at risk of depression?

Join us on Wednesday, October 18 from 12pm-1:30pm ET for our “Ask The Experts” webinar “Depression: Youth Mental Health and Digital Media,” the second in a set of webinars investigating common mental health struggles facing youth today. A panel of clinical psychologists, child and adolescent psychiatrists, and other experts in depressive disorders will share clinical insights and current research on depression in youth, how digital media use may be affecting it, and tips on how caregivers can support children who may be dealing with or at risk of depression.
