As adolescents grow apart from their parents and gain a sense of independence, they may find themselves unable to maintain a healthy stress-relief balance. It is possible that depression will set in as a result, and in some cases, suicide will be the result. Choose between the topics of adolescent depression or adolescent suicide as your research topic. Discuss any contributing factors, as well as any signs and symptoms that may be observed or assessed in these clients, with the client. Describe the primary, secondary, and tertiary methods of health prevention that can be used to address this issue in detail. Examine community and state resources for your chosen topic and write a description of at least two of them. Aside from referring the adolescent to a state or community resource, what other nursing interventions could you use to assist an adolescent who you suspect is suffering from depression?
