Funded by a series of grants from the National Institute of Mental Health, the Adolescent Coping with Depression Course (CWD-A) is an evidence-based, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) for adolescent depression. The CWD-A is designed for use with groups of four to eight adolescents, or it can be modified for use on an individual basis.
