Webinar Description: This webinar will review the intersection of substance use disorders (SUD) and diagnosed depression within young people in the US. Since the mid-1990s, Major Depressive Episodes (MDE) increased in terms of percentage and the rate of those with MDE who experience severe impairment. Additionally, SUD presents in 3 of 10 youth experiencing MDE, which makes this subset of youth population with Co-occurring disorders (COD) at an increased risk of suicidal behavior more than due to each uni-diagnosis alone. COD have also compounding effects on personal life quality, wellness and on response to treatment. Finally, recent developments in interventions for youth with COD will be presented.

Educational Objectives:

  • Explain the five co-occurrence models to diagnosing patients who may be presenting symptoms of both conditions.
  • Summarize the implications of comorbid major depressive disorder and substance use disorder to youth.
  • Explain how to effectively communicate potential interventions and treatment methods to youth.
