The CATCH-IT internet-based program teaches teens how to deal with feeling sad and down, and ways to manage these moods. CATCH-IT stands for Competent Adulthood Transition with Cognitive-behavioral & Interpersonal Training.
In CATCH-IT, teens will learn strategies to cope with negative thoughts, to manage conflicts with friends and family, and to plan for major life changes. It is important for you to keep track of changes in your mood. You should always seek help from a PCP or other professional if you feel you may be getting depressed.
For Parents/Caregivers. This program helps parents to learn about what their teens are learning, and about what steps they can take to promote well-being. In the CATCH-IT group, parents will get instructions to visit the internet site specifically for parent/caregivers.
