Please help me write a case study on childhood depression that I am struggling with. Here are the instructions.
Imagine yourself to be a counselor at a community mental health agency. You have been asked to share your thoughts in a meeting of a parent-teacher association at the local elementary school on the subject of childhood depression.
Write a 4- to 5-page report in a Microsoft Word document summarizing your thoughts that you will share in the meeting. In your report, include the answers to the following questions:
- How common is depression in children?
- How is depression in children different from depression in adults?
- How are children assessed for depression?
- What signs should parents and teachers notice that suggest that a child might need to be evaluated for depression?
