Adolescent depression is a developmentally and emotionally disrupting illness with serious implications for the person affected and the family. Though family factors have been studied extensively in terms of etiology of mental illness, little is known about the family system experience as an adolescent member suffers from depression. The purpose of this hermeneutic phenomenological study is to describe the experience of families whose members include an adolescent, aged 12 to 18, currently diagnosed with major depression. The families are purposively sampled from a mental health clinic where adolescents are in treatment. Each family member must meet inclusion criteria of understanding and speaking English fluently, and only family members over age 12 are interviewed. Family members individually participate in tape-recorded interviews and are asked to share all thoughts, perceptions, and feelings they have had in their family while the adolescent member has been depressed. The transcribed interviews will be analyzed using the Giorgi (1985) modification of the phenomenological method of data analysis, preserving the meaning of the phenomenon within the context of the family's experience. Understanding the experience of families whose members include an adolescent with depression is central to an unbiased clinician's plan for support and intervention with the family.
