It’s not unusual for young people to experience "the blues" or feel "down in the dumps" occasionally.
When teens’ moods disrupt their ability to function on a day-to-day basis, it may indicate a serious emotional or mental disorder that needs attention — adolescent depression. When teens feel down, there are ways they can cope with these feelings to avoid serious depression.
All of these suggestions help develop a sense of acceptance and belonging that is so important to adolescents.
But sometimes, despite everyone’s best efforts, teens become depressed. Studies show that some depressed people have too much or too little of certain brain chemicals.
Also, a family history of depression may increase the risk for developing depression.
Other factors that can contribute to depression are difficult life events (such as death or divorce), side-effects from some medications and negative thought patterns.
Adolescent depression is increasing at an alarming rate.
