Depression in teens is common and disabling. Currently available measures of the burden of depression in teens, such as symptom ratings, do not capture the full impact of depression on teens’ lives. Improved measurement of the impact of depression on teen’s quality of life would aid in evaluating new treatments and in setting public health policies to address teen depression.
