Psychotherapy is the first line of the managment of depression in adolescence but complementary approaches can be herbal medicine, homeopathy, nutrition, physical activity wiches are usually not used in practice. There is a lot of brakes of the care in the managment of depression in adolescence like a poor representation of the disease, a lack of child psychiatrists, …) and it suggest that there is still a way to get an optimal care of depressive adolescents in France.
