Teens and Depression

  • Depressed Kids Need Help
    Teen depression is a serious illness. The benefits of getting help, including taking medications if needed, far outweigh the potential risks.
  • Major Depression in Adolescents
    Depression is a mood disorder that involves a adolescent's body, mood, and thoughts. It can affect and disrupt eating, sleeping, or thinking patterns.
  • Overview of Mood Disorders in Children and Adolescents
    Mood disorders in teens remain one of the most under-diagnosed mental health problems. These disorders also put teens at risk for other conditions that may persist long after the initial episodes of depression are resolved.
  • Understanding Teenage Depression
    The medical community once thought depression affected only adults. The risk for the condition begins in the early teens, however, and increases steadily through the mid-20s.
