PreSchooler Depression?

I came across this article in my Behavioral Disorders in Education class about diagnosing preschoolers with depression. It is very interesting to see the early signs, and the debate of whether we can diagnose children who barely yet understand their environment with depression. My major concern in this article, is if your child is diagnosed with depression, what do you do about it? In adults the most common and effective treatment for depression is medication, but would you give your preschooler, or even a child in early elementary school anti-depression medication?

Its an interesting read.. check it out...Can Preschoolers Be Depressed??
