Is Your Teenager Suffering From Depression - How To Identify?

Is Your Teenager Suffering From Depression - How To Identify?

Teenagers face a huge amount of pressure, from puberty changes to questions regarding their identity and where they fit in. With this kind of uncertainty and instability, it is generally not easy to distinguish amongst depression and the developing hormonal changes. However, teen depression goes way beyond general teenage moodiness. It is a serious medical issue that affects each part of a teenager's life. Luckily, it is treatable and parents can offer assistance.

Here are a few signs that can help determine whether a teenager has depression:
Genuinely depressed teenagers regularly think, talk about, or make attention gathering attempts at suicide. However, a disturbing and increasing number of teenagers’ suicide attempts do happen in reality. Therefore, self-destructive or suicidal thoughts or behaviors need to be considered important and taken seriously.

  1. A teenager who stays sad, cranky, void or in an irritable mood and believes that life meaningless and good for nothing, is suffering from depression.
  2. They may experience a loss of enthusiasm for games or exercises they used to appreciate or a withdrawal from loved ones or an inescapable inconvenience seeing someone.
  3. They experience changes in appetite, critical weight gain or loss.
  4. A depressed teenager has a tendency to indulge in increased late-night activities, has too much or too little sleep, faces inconvenience getting up in the morning and is regularly late for school.
  5. A teenager who is depressed suffers from physical agitation, paces forward and backward and displays over the top or dull behaviors.
  6. He/she may have a loss of energy, social withdrawal, withdrawal from regular exercises, or fatigue.
  7. He/she may make basic remarks about themselves, conduct issues at school or at home, or become excessively sensitive to being rejected.
  8. A teenager who is depressed usually has poor performance in school, a drop in test results, or a poor attendance.
  9. He/she frequently complains about physical pain (headaches, stomach aches).
  10. He/she thinks or writes about death, gives away the most loved assets with remarks like "You would be better off without me."

Remember that a lot of these signs and symptoms are similar to the conduct of an ordinary teenager. That is the reason why a specialist or a psychologist should be considered in order to determine whether your child has depression or not. In case you are uncertain if your child is depressed or simply being an adolescent, consider to what extent these signs have been going on, how extreme they are, and how different your child is acting from his or her typical self.

Depression is a natural condition. It is not something to be embarrassed about and it should be dealt with. A mix of medical and psychological behavioral treatments are regularly prescribed for teenagers. Request a referral to a psychological wellness clinician from your doctor or medical attendant, a neighborhood recreational center or healing center, friends, kins, care groups, or clinicians. It is important that the entire family get instruction and support about the disorder as patients suffering from depression need company and support. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychologist.

If you are not happy with your marriage then why did you agree for such a big decision of your life? Before taking any step, you should have been talk to your parents this is the matter of two families not only yours. If there is not any solid reason, I think you must consult to marriage counselor to help you mentally.

Dear Lybrate user, I would first like to address the incident of your husband having a fit. Was this the 1st time he had fits or he used to have them earlier as well? It is important to get this investigated in either of the conditions, more so if this was the 1st episode ever. As per your statement, it seems he does not talk much. Is he this way in general as well? We all have individual differences. Some people can talk more whereas others tend to talk less. It is not about being right or wrong, but about the kind of nature a person has. If you think it needs to be dealt with then probably you can discuss with him about the same. Share with him your concern and try to listen to what he has to say rather than just telling him what you want. A healthy discussion is always more fruitful than blaming each other for any problem. Try to reach to a common understanding on the same and spend quality time with each other, even if not much is spoken while you are together. Best wishes.

Dear lybrate-user, thanks for the question. I understand your concerns. I went through the details. Anxiety is a disorder. Not a disease. Mental diseases are usually treated with the help of psychiatric medicines. Mental disorders are treated with the help of psychotherapy, life style changes and relaxation methods. Panic attacks are always due to the underlying anxiety disorders. To clear panic attacks, you need to treat and clear anxiety disorder. Psychotherapy techniques include rational emotive therapy, cognitive behavior therapy etc. You should consult a psychologist for these therapies. In the mean time, you can start physical exercise at least for one hour and breathing exercises for 10minutes daily. I hope this answer satisfies you. I am available for further clarifications. Take care.

I am 45 years old and suffering from Parkinson disease since last 2 years. I have taken treatment from neurologist doctor but no relief. Please guide me.

DM - Neurology
Neurologist,
Kindly provide details of your symptoms. Also explain what you mean by no relief with medicines. If the diagnosis is correct, then there cannot be a'no response to medicines' - that is one of the criteria for diagnosis. Hence this information is crucial.

I lost somebody close my friends. He is depressed to the work .how can we try. Please help?
Hi lybrate-user! Do you want to help him or you want him to undergo treatment for the same. Okay whatever it is he should volunteer to undergo treatment for the same. If he is hesitant then you can definitely help him overcome this problem completely. First I need to know from when and what is the cause was it love failure or someone close to him accordingly only I can assist you to help him anyway, my suggestion is try to divert his attention into something crazy like depends on his interests otherwise. Let him to cry and let him scold. Console him a lot. Talk positive to him always. If you need further assistance feel free to contact me either through text chat or call me. Take care of you as well as your friend. Try to be supportive.
