This February 19, 2014 The Mercury Lifestyle article talks about a new test that may be helpful in predicting whether there is a risk for a male teen to later be diagnosed with major depression.  The test has been tried in both men and women, but findings show that it is more exact in men then it is in women.   The test looks at cortisol levels in the saliva which is used as a gauge to predict the risk of depression.  The test is being looked at in London, but is something that could be useful if it proves to be accurate in the long run.
