In both adults and pediatric population, depression is a major disability cause; suicide is the third death cause among children and adolescents. Whereas depression and depression with associated anxiety are among the most common psychiatric pathologies in children and adolescents (with strong impact on their global functionality and with a significant influence on their development process), they are far from studied thoroughly. This study aims to highlight certain demographic and clinical patterns associated to depression of anxiety in children and adolescents, which may represent premises for broader future research and for the consolidation of primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention methods.
