Depression is one of mental disorders that can affect teenagers. Negative stigma against depression may cause patients not to have appropriate professional treatment, thus the patient might get worse even can ended up with suicide. Psycoeducation is one of many ways that used by professional health care to reduce stigma against depression especially among teenagers. This study was accomplished to measure the effectivity of psycoeducation by comparing the level of stigma against depression pre and post psychoeducation among teenagers.
