ConclusionsAs interventions aiming to improve cognitive outcomes in mood disorders receive increasing research focus, the issue of setting a cut‐off level of cognitive impairment for screening purposes becomes a priority. This analysis demonstrates important differences in samples likely to be recruited depending on the definition of cognitive impairment and begins to examine the importance of premorbid IQ in determining who is impaired.

Purpose: Roughly 11% of US adolescents experience a major depressive episode, and the majority of adolescents suffering from depression do not obtain the appropriate treatment. Primary care is an ideal location for the diagnosis of depression, however, little is known regarding treatment and follow-up of depression in this setting. Previous research has followed the course of treatment for adolescents diagnosed with depression over a three month time period, but depression is a chronic condition with a high possibility of recurrence later in life.
