Teenage Depression

Teenage depression isn't just bad moods or bad behavior. Teenage depression is a serious issue, and as a parent or guardian, it's your responsibility to track down warning signs of depression. Here are a few tips that can help you find warning signs that your teen may have a depression problem.

  • Your child is in an angry or irritable mood. A depressed teenager may be easily frustrated, and may lash out at you or others.
  • Physical aches and pains. Your teen may express that they have physical ailments such as stomach aches and headaches.
  • Withdraws from family and friends. When a teenager is depressed, they will tend to shy away from activities with friends and family. Your teen may stop associating with his friends, and they may even start being with a different crowd.
  • Loss of concentration. Depression can lead to your child forgetting things and losing focus on important task.
  • Self injury. If you notice your child cutting, burning, or expressing other self inflicted injuries, this may be a sign of depression.
  • Low self-esteem. Depression can trigger and intensify feelings of ugliness, shame, failure, and unworthiness.
  • Reckless behavior. Depressed teens may engage in dangerous or high-risk behaviors, such as reckless driving, binge drinking, and unsafe sex.
  • Suicide. Teens who are seriously depressed often think, speak, or make attempts at suicide. Suicidal thoughts or behaviors should always be taken very seriously.

After you've read these warning signs of depression, you should seek medical treatment for your child. Depression can lead to your child contemplating suicide.
