Support thread for parents of teenagers with depression

My DS aged 16 was diagnosed with anxiety and depression only a couple of months ago so this is all quite new to me. I'm struggling to understand how to help him and to navigate our way through GPs, psychologists etc.
At the same time it's very upsetting to see him so down and with no hope for the future.
I'm hoping to be able to share experiences and support with others in similar positions and hopefully also hear some positive stories from those further ahead in the process.

My 16yr old has anxiety, undiagnosed PDA and is prone to violent outbursts and controlling behaviour.
She's currently on 150mg of sertraline which helps, but I'm still very wary of her.

Just wondering if you have any advice, am just going through this as well with my 15 year old son.
