The new edition of Guidelines for Adolescent Depression in Primary Care (GLAD-PC) is now available on The REACH Institute website. This practical toolkit offers dozens of resources to help pediatric primary care providers diagnose and treat depression.

“More than a decade had passed since the original publication of GLAD-PC,” said Rachel Zuckerbrot, MD, one of the toolkit’s authors. “Though most of the tools and guidelines had stood the test of the time, some needed to be updated.

The GLAD-PC toolkit is published by The REACH Institute and written by Amy Cheung, MD; Rachel A. Zuckerbrot, MD; and Peter S. Jensen, MD.
