Chicago – A significant number of adolescents and teens who receive treatment for depression relapse a few years later. As reported by Reuters, researchers found that of the teens who receive treatment for the condition, approximately half have a relapse within five years.

John Curry of Duke University in North Carolina is quoted in the report as stating of the findings of his study, which also showed females to have a higher risk for relapse than males, “Further research needs to be done to confirm our findings and to sort out the variables that may be associated with recurrent major depression in young women.”

“We need to learn why females in this age range have higher chances of descending into another major depression after they have made a recovery.”

More information about the study may be found in the Archives of General Psychiatry.
