Depression Intervention for Adolescents with Depression and Sleep Disturbances
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:
• 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).
