This study randomised adolescents with depression in to three groups (cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), short-term psychoanalytical therapy and a brief psychosocial intervention)
There was no difference between any of the groups at 12 months follow-up.
Take home message - support, clinician-young person relationships and follow-up are probably the most important aspect of care of depressed young people!

Most lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning
(LGBTQ)* youth are happy and thrive during their adolescent years. Going to a school that creates a safe and supportive learning environment for all students and having caring and accepting parents are especially important. This helps all youth achieve good grades and maintain good mental and physical health. However, some LGBTQ youth are more likely than their heterosexual peers to experience difficulties in their lives and school environments, such as violence.

Message from Bryan Wilson - Community Investment
Tēnā koutou katoa
Last week we published the Community Investment Strategy Update 2016.
The Update summarises what we achieved in the first year of the three-year implementation process, sets out the direction for the next 12 months and aligns with the work programme to establish the new Ministry for Vulnerable Children, Oranga Tamariki.
Since the release of the Strategy in 2015, MSD has been developing its social investment approach to contracting for programmes and services. This allows us to better deliver effective programmes and services to the right people at the right time.
A social investment approach is about providing up-front investment to support people most at risk of poor outcomes later on in life. We will use the technology and data available to help us understand the people who rely on the programmes and services we invest in. We want providers to be able to spend more time working with their clients and collecting information about the results they’re getting, and less time meeting our contract compliance requirements.
Our focus is on ensuring there is sufficient evidence about the programmes and services we fund for us to be confident they will work. We are confident the Community Investment Strategy will enable us to achieve this.
