NICE guidance on depression in children and young people

This NICE guideline covers identifying and managing depression in children and young people aged 5 to 18 years.

Based on the stepped-care model, it aims to improve recognition and assessment and promote effective treatments for mild and moderate to severe depression. The guideline is for health care professionals, commissioners and providers, and children and young people with depression and their families and carers. The guideline replaces CG28.
