Abstract (Summary)

Latinx adolescents reveal the highest risk for depression across multiple ethnic groups; therefore, it is critical to reduce the burden of mental illness among Latinx adolescents. The purpose of this psychoeducational curriculum is to enhance support for Latinx parents with adolescents who are affected by clinical depression. The curriculum was specifically designed to increase Latinx parent’s understanding on how depression impacts adolescents, provide tools and strategies to cope with the impact of depression, and increase awareness of community resources. The goal of the curriculum is to teach parents strategies to strengthen interpersonal relationships and help their adolescents cope with depressive symptoms. The curriculum will include group discussions and homework assignments to increase participants’ likelihood of using the tools and strategies at home. A facilitator’s guide is also included to assist with the implementation of the curriculum.
