Depression Expert, Dr. Deborah Serani, Takes on Pediatric Depression
Date:9/10/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) September 10, 2013

Studies show that children*, even babies**, experience depression. The clinical term is called Pediatric Depression, and rates are higher now than ever before. In the United States alone, evidence suggests that up to 1% of babies, 4 percent of preschool-aged children, 5 percent of school-aged children, and 11 percent of adolescents meet the criteria for major depression***.

According to American Association of Suicidology, Suicide is the 3rd leading cause of death in adolescents ages 15 to 24, and is the 6th leading cause of death in children ages 5 to14****. Suicide is significantly linked to depression, so early diagnosis and treatment of Pediatric Depression is extremely important.

September is Suicide Awareness Month. Dr. Deborah Serani, a go to media expert and an award-winning author on depression, is available for print, radio and television interviews. Her new book "Depression and Your Child: A Guide for Parents and Caregivers" launches September 16, 2013.
