Toward Scientific Equity for the Prevention of Depression and Depressive Symptoms in Vulnerable Youth

Eleven researchers studied the effectiveness of preventative measures taken to help vulnerable subpopulations of youth prevent depression. The study was funded by the National Institute of Mental Health Grant and found:

  • A diverse array of preventative strategies will be key in countering depression and mental health issues in vulnerable populations.
  • Legislation to implement proven preventative strategies could allow these approaches to reach more people.
  • More research about preventative measures to combat depression in vulnerable youth subgroup populations will yield more representative results as the sample sizes studied increase.
