U.K. researchers discover a new indicator for depression

Researchers from the University of Cambridge say they have taken the “first step” towards developing a screening tool for predicting the risk of clinical depression in teenage boys.

In the following Globe and Mail video, Dr. Robert Levitan​ from CAMH discusses the importance of this research and its potential use in identifying youth at “high risk” for depression, thus reducing the chance of them experiencing serious episodes of depression in their adult life.​
