#TomorrowsDiscoveries: Helping Teens Suffering with Depression

After three adolescent suicides in the Baltimore area, the community turned to Johns Hopkins, where Karen Swartz, M.D., and her team developed the Adolescent Depression Awareness Program, known as ADAP. ADAP educates high school students, teachers and parents about adolescent depression and bipolar disorder by stressing the need for evaluation and treatment, and decreasing the stigma.
