Demonstrates that adolescent girls are at a higher risk of depression than boys are, and that depression is of particular concern in pregnant and postpartum adolescents because of the potential impact on the infant. Argues that primary care providers (PCPs) should routinely screen adolescent girls for depression and consider depression in their differential diagnoses of somatic complaints.
