DEPRESSION

Everyone gets depressed, especially teenagers.  This is common and often depression will end after a short period of time.  However, when depression seems to last for weeks or even months, it is time to do something about it.  Untreated depression can lead to life long physical and psychological problems or even suicide.  

If your child is experiencing any of the following they may be clinically depressed:

  • Trouble concentrating, remembering details, and making decisions

  • Fatigue

  • Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, and helplessness

  • Pessimism and hopelessness

  • Insomnia, early-morning wakefulness, or sleeping too much

  • Irritability

  • Restlessness
