They explained how to diagnose child-adolescent depression at the early stage, how to prevent child-adolescent depression, Internet addiction, school truancy (dropouts), sexual abuse and the difference between child-adolescent depression and adult depression. The subtopics are related to current news that has happened recently in the Chinese community. We provided giveaways, refreshments and a depression assessment along with critical information to help the parents learn about this illness and how it is affecting the Chinese community.
