What is depression?
Depression is a state of being sad and hopeless at the same time. This feeling can lead to anxiety and lack of motivation. Your thinking is negative, meaning that you only think about bad things and have no energy or time for anything else. Depression is common and affects countless people around the world every year. Luckily there are many ways to reduce depression.
Does my child suffer from depression?
Depression is a serious illness that can be treated. Depression can affect anyone, including teenagers and young adults, who are often thought to be incapable of experiencing it. Normal teenagers and young adults often show signs of neglect: at school, at home and at their sports club. However, some may go even further and resort to alcohol, drugs or pornography. Teenagers with depression will also show different symptoms in different settings. Some have both depression and an anxiety disorder, or depression and general anxiety. It is not uncommon for adolescents to be diagnosed with both disorders
