Children and adolescent depression are an unfortunate reality in our current times. Mood disorders in our youth are on the rise, and so is parents’ mental well-being.

Factors accounting for the high incidence of depression in our kids may include stress and the loss of a parent or a loved one.

Attention deficits, conduct or learning disorders, abuse, neglect, and natural disasters—other known factors are poor sleep related to blue light-emitting from tablets and smartphones. Poor sleep might be related to spending excessive time using social media and video gaming.

Psychological research shows that depressive symptoms such as feeling down, worthless and hopeless were linked to having poor quality of online interactions.

There may be multiple other reasons for your child or adolescent to be in emotional distress. It is essential to address your concerns and evaluate your child or teen promptly.

Signs and symptoms of depression in children and teens include:

  • Increased irritability or angry outburst
  • Frequent feelings of sadness and hopelessness
  • Isolation
  • Hypersensitive to rejection
  • Increased or decreased appetite
  • Changes in sleep
  • Verbal outbursts
  • Frequent crying episodes
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Decreased energy
  • Difficulty relating to others and participating in activities at home, school, or friends.
  • Feelings of worthlessness or guilt
  • Thoughts of death or suicide
