What can I do to get help for depression?

The good news is that depression is one of the most treatable conditions. One of the first steps in getting better is to speak with your doctor or nurse. They will be able to provide you with information on appropriate counseling and in some cases medication to help you feel better.

At CHOC, we are able to provide our patients access to a variety of psychosocial services—from social workers to psychologists to child life specialists—trained to assist teens undergoing cancer treatment.
