Depression is one of the most common psychological disorders and is associated with a wide range of impairments. Whilst prevalence rates in childhood are relatively low they increase in adolescence and a number of programmes have now been developed which aim to prevent depression in this age group. This paper reviews those programmes that target children and adolescents considered at risk by virtue of their already elevated depression symptoms. A range of such programmes exist the majority are cognitive behavioural but a number also focus on interpersonal influences on depression. Whilst results provide evidence that such programmes can potentially reduce depression symptoms only a few studies have considered diagnoses and more research is needed in this area. Differences in who programmes target, their setting, length of interventions and in design make studies difficult to compare and further coherence will be needed in the field if a picture of 'what works for whom' is to emerge.
