Abstract

Abstract: Youth who have mental health issues are more likely than their peers to seek primary care services. The primary care setting is an appropriate venue for screening and identifying pediatric depression. Additionally, nurse practitioners can provide initial management or referral to psychiatric mental health professionals for evidence-based treatments.
