Depressive disorder is a syndrome (group of symptoms) that reflects a sad mood exceeding normal sadness or grief. More specifically, the sadness of depression is characterized by a greater intensity and duration and by more severe symptoms and functional disabilities than is normal.
Depression symptoms are characterized not only by negative thoughts, moods, and behaviors, but also by specific changes in bodily functions (e.g., eating, sleeping and socialization).
FutureSearch Trials is currently conducting a research study of an investigational medication for children between the ages of 7 and 17 who are currently suffering from depression. If you would like more information or to see if you qualify, call us today or apply online.
