Is Your Teen Depressed?

Are you the parent of an adolescent who is struggling with depression and sleep difficulties? We may have a treatment that can help.

We are conducting research to compare different ways of improving sleep and mood in teens. Treatment involves Interpersonal Psychotherapy for Adolescents targeting:
• depression
• trouble falling and staying asleep
• not feeling rested on waking
• feeling sleepy during the day

To participate, your child must:
• be 12 to 17 years old
• have sleep problems
• have symptoms of depression (persistently sad or apathetic mood, disturbed appetite, poor
concentration, poor self-esteem, and decreased interest in pleasurable activities).
