Lifetime prevalence of major depression is estimated at 28% by age 18 (Lewinsohn et al., 1999), with higher cumulative rates in females (35%) than males (19%). Approximately 17% of children and adolescents in the United States are obese as defined by a BMI above the 95th percentile, with more than 30% falling between the 85th and 95th percentiles (Ogden et al., 2008). Overweight children and adolescents are at increased risk for type 2 diabetes (Pinhas-Hamiel et al., 1996) and ...
The investigators will recruit adolescents with alcohol abuse and clinically significant depression. All participants will receive 12 weeks of an evidence-based treatment for alcohol abuse, Motivation enhancement Therapy/Cognitive Behavior Therapy-12. Those who are still depressed after 4 weeks will be randomized to receive treatment augmentation with either an integrated cognitive behavior therapy for depression, delivered by their study therapist, or depression treatment-as-u...
The investigators propose a randomized controlled effectiveness trial to evaluate the integrated clinic-community model of child obesity treatment as compared with routine primary care.
Research has shown that alcohol dependence often co-occurs with comorbid anxiety disorders and/or depression. Anxiety and depression influence the course and treatment of alcohol dependence and are a major risk factor for alcohol relapse within the first three months after detoxification. Therefore, there is need for combined treatment (integrated therapy) of alcohol dependence and comorbid psychiatric disorders, e.g. anxiety and/or depression. Until today, there are no systema...
Depression and obesity are very common among adolescents and young adults with attention-deficit/ hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). However, intervention programmes to prevent these comorbid disorders rarely exist. In a pilot randomized-controlled study we test two newly developed intervention programmes that do not involve medication: bright light therapy and physical exercise. Both interventions will be supported by a mobile Health application to monitor and feedback interventio...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether it is more effective to treat adolescents, with diagnoses of both depression and substance use disorder, with a treatment addressing the substance use first and then treating the depression or to first treat the depression and then treat the substance use or whether treating both disorders simultaneously is most effective. It is expected that treatment of both disorders at the same time will be the most effective.
This study seeks to learn about brain function in adolescents with depression and to determine whether adding lithium carbonate to antidepressant medication can reduce depression in children and adolescents. Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) will examine brain chemistry and function.
The objective of the study is to improve general practitioners' diagnoses of adolescent depression. Major depression is ranked fourth in the worldwide disability impact. The proportion of adolescents suffering from depressive disorders also seems to be increasing worldwide. Early interventions are known to reduce this illness. Therefore, the earlier depression can be identified in adolescents, the greater the advantage.
Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) affect approximately 1.1% of late adolescents and young adults, making it one of the most common neurodevelopmental disorders. Comorbid anxiety disorders affect many higher-functioning adolescents and young adults with ASD, causing substantial distress and impairment over and above that caused by an ASD diagnosis alone. While cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a first-line treatment for anxiety disorders among typically developing late adolesc...
Depression is highly prevalent among people living with HIV (PLHIV) in Malawi and elsewhere in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). Besides its high prevalence, depression likely represents an important barrier to consistent HIV care engagement and long-term viral suppression. However, the potential for depression treatment to improve HIV care outcomes has received little attention in the region, in part because of limited mental health infrastructure. In this study, the investigators wil...
Major depressive disorder (MDD) is among the most common psychiatric disorders among adolescents, and is associated with considerable psychosocial and functional impairments and an elevated risk of suicidal behaviour and completed suicide. Meanwhile, sleep disturbance, particularly insomnia, is among the most prevalent and prominent presenting complaints in adolescents with depression. Despite its high prevalence, insomnia often remains overlooked and under-treated in clinical ...
The proposed study seeks to establish the feasibility of universal screening for depression in an adult primary care safety net setting, measure the effectiveness of a culturally appropriate depression education intervention to reduce stigma and increase uptake in depression treatment among Hispanics, and implement a Measurement-Based Integrated Care (MBIC) model with collaborative, multi-disciplinary treatment and culturally tailored care management strategies.
This study will compare the effectiveness of two programs designed to prevent depression in adolescents.
The purpose of this study is to identify significant racial and ethnical differences in risk factors for development of obesity and weight loss in adolescents in Central Virginia
This study will evaluate the effect of atomoxetine in treating ADHD symptoms in children and adolescents with ADHD and comorbid reading disability (dyslexia)
The proposed study is a randomized, open, comparative research involving an intervention group and two control groups. The aims of the study are: 1.To compare levels of depression in female adolescents with obesity and a control group of female adolescents with appropriate weight and height. 2. To investigate whether a decrease in weight due to a short range intervention program provided by dietician for female adolescents with obesity will lead to change in the levels of ...
The purpose of the study is to determine how best to treat adolescents with depression that is "resistant" to the first SSRI antidepressant they have tried. Participants receive one of three other antidepressant medications, either alone or in combination with cognitive behavioral therapy.
Background: Depression is prevalent and can have devastating effects on the life of adolescents. Computerized intervention programs for depression have shown positive results. There is less evidence in prevention and early treatment for depression in Latin American adolescents. Purpose: The purpose of this study is to determine whether a stepped internet-based program is effective to prevent and early intervene depression in adolescents attending 9th to 11th grade in eig...
This study examined the benefit of continued treatment with an antidepressant medication, sertraline, in adolescents with depression who improved on sertraline acutely. We hypothesize that adolescents who remained on sertraline long term were less likely to have a recurrence of depression compared to those on placebo.
The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of an antenatal obesity treatment on gestational weight gain when integrated into Philadelphia WIC.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether the LAP-BAND system is safe and effective in morbidly obese adolescents.
The purpose of this study is to examine the feasibility of using Interpersonal Psychotherapy for Depressed Adolescents (IPT-A) to treat adolescents who are experiencing symptoms of depression and are engaging in non-suicidal self-injurious behaviors. The trial will include recruiting 10 particpants, administering 12-sessions of individual IPT-A, and determining how the IPT-A protocol needs to be amended to adequately address the self-injury in addition to depression.
The purpose of this study is to test the efficacy of Our Family Our Future, an integrated intervention for preventing HIV and depression onset among adolescents.
Depression is difficult to identify, prevent and treat in adolescents because of complex and stigmatized multiform symptoms and pathways of care. In children the existence of a parental depression is a significant and recognized risk factor for the development of a depression. It is regularly reported that 30% of adolescents of depressed parents have depression themselves. General Practitioners (GP) have significant access to the depression of adults, potentially parents of te...
This is a study about treatment for people who suffer from both major depression and alcohol abuse or dependence. The study will examine whether the addition of acamprosate to escitalopram and behavioral interventions will improve outcomes for this population.
