Quelles sont les données socio-démographiques des adolescents à l’inclusion dans l’étude AdoDesP ?

Abstract : 8% of teenagers aged 12 to 18 in France, suffer from depression. The risk factors for adolescent depression are poorly identified. The objective was to collect sociodemographic data about adolescents included in the AdoDesP study. Methods : the AdoDesP study was a randomized open-label controlled trial, its aim was to collect data on the prevalence of depression in adolescents and to identify potential risk factors. It focused on collecting socio-demographic data from adolescents at the time of inclusion in the study. These data were analyzed using descriptive statistics. Results : 42 adolescents were included, 13 of whom were considered depressed according to the ADRS scale. Among the depressed group, there were 9 girls and 4 boys. The average age was 14,05. A family history of depression was found in 11 adolescents. A family history of suicide / suicide attempt was found in 4 adolescents. There seemed to be a predominance of suicide attempt by the mother in the depressed group. 2 adolescents had learning disabilities. There was no gender difference. There were no adolescents placed or had a serious illness. Conclusion : investigating physicians have had refusals. Lack of time and remuneration, communication difficulties were the main obstacles to this study. Nevertheless, it is possible to suggest the role of a history of parental depression as well as a history of maternal suicide/attempted suicide. It would be interesting to broaden the inclusion criteria in order to have a more representative sample, particularly among adolescents who are repeaters, in care or carriers of serious illness.
