Causes and Symptoms of Childhood Depression

MD - Psychiatry, Diploma in Child & Adolescent Psychology , MBBS
Psychiatrist, Pune
Causes and Symptoms of Childhood Depression

Childhood depression is a condition marked by persistent sadness. It causes the child to feel lonely, hopeless, helpless and worthless. If this type of a sadness persists, it can disrupt his/her childhood and may have lasting effects even into adulthood. If neglected, childhood depression can lead to suicide.

What are the causes?
The exact cause of childhood depression is not known but a combination of other factors can lead to such. Some of them are:

  1. Physical health
  2. Family and external environment
  3. Mental health
  4. Genetic vulnerability and
  5. Biochemical disturbance

Children who suffer from such depression can behave and misbehave erratically. Yet, some children may continue to behave reasonably well in structured environments. Some young children may impulsively attempt suicide due to anger and frustration. Studies show that girls are more likely to commit suicide than boys.

What are the symptoms?

Children who suffer from such depression exhibit certain symptoms. Some of them are:

  1. Increased or decreased appetite
  2. Changes in sleeping patterns
  3. Difficulty in concentration
  4. Fatigue
  5. Sadness and hopelessness
  6. Vocal outbursts
  7. Disobedience
  8. Irritability and anger
  9. Increased sensitivity to rejection
  10. uicidal thoughts

Some children start to use drugs or pick up detrimental habits like smoking and drinking to evade their depression. Children with a family history of physical or sexual abuse are at a greater risk of experiencing depression. Consulting a therapist or a counselor in this case is duly advised.

What is the remedy of stammering problem. Please tell me as soon as possible. Thankyou.

Psychologist, Delhi
Stammering generally develops in the course of growing up. And is linked somewhat to your self confidence. Try speaking by looking into the mirror. Speak slowly. Create a script before speaking. Exercise deep breathing and say encouraging words to yourself - i'm good, I have qualities. I'm good at doing this believe in yourself.

Dear lybrate user, try the following tips to help soothe pain and ease into your day: 1> take a warm shower or bath - warm showers or baths at bedtime and in the morning will help to relax muscles. 2> avoid caffeine, alcohol, and nicotine 3> exercise - exercising during the day will increase restful sleep at night. Physical stretching exercises such as yoga helps in relaxation too. 4> practice healthy sleep habits. * sometimes, deficiency of essential minerals causes generalised body pain and laziness, hence go for a body check-up, if the above tips do not help.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. This is a critical situation. You need both of to be happy. Parents asmwell as your family. For that you need to convince your wife. As a son, you are supposed to look after your parents in their old age. It becomes your duty. You have to categorically tell this to your wife. Use your authority and love to get her agree. You have to be stern in some of your actions. Your wife too should understand relationships. If you can't make her understand, I can do that. Family counselling is effective in such aspects. I suggest online family counselling for both of you. Take care.

Hello lybrate-user, if you were taking large amounts of alcohol, earlier and are free from alcohol for last 4 years it is best to continue to be alcohol-free. Otherwise you might go back to similar drinking pattern, as before. Complete 5 years of being alcohol-free. Alcohol in any form is harmful.

Respected Sir, First of all, I would like to know if your depression is a self/google-assisted diagnosis or have you actually consulted a psychiatrist who has diagnosed depression in you. If its the former, please do consult a psychiatrist to review your symptoms and reach a diagnosis. If you have already been diagnosed with depression, are you taking any form of treatment despite which your symptoms are persisting. The natural course of a depressive episode lasts 9-12 months but in some cases persistent depressive disorder is seen which too is treatable if you get the necessary help.

Sleeping for 7-8 hours is not a problem. You will have to take care of your diet - eat smaller portions. Have a healthy nutritious diet - avoid junk food and also snacks like biscuits and namkeens. Instead snack on fruits, nuts and roasted grams and snacks. Have lots of water and home made drinks- avoid tea and coffee. Exercise is a must to energize your body and brain- yoga is a good idea - do some pranayam. Divide content into smaller chunks. Set daily targets in terms of portions you want to complete rather than the no. Of hours you want to put in. Test yourself after every topic that you finish. Reward yourself if you are able to achieve daily targets. Make your goal important for yourself and think of a negative consequence (one that you most want to avoid) for self motivation.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
All about depression

Depression is a major public health problem as a leading predictor of functional disability and mortality.
Optimal depression treatment improves outcome for most patients.
Most adults with clinical significant depression never see a mental health professional but they often see a primary care physician.
A non?psychiatric physician 50% of times misses the diagnosis of the depression.
All depressed patients must be enquired specifically about suicidal ideations.
Suicidal ideation is a medical emergency
Risk factors for suicide are psychiatric known disorders, medical illness, prior history of suicidal attempts or family history of attempted suicide.
The demographic reasons include older age, male gender, marital status (widowed or separated) and living alone.
About 1 million people commit suicide every year globally.
Around 79% of patients who commit suicide contact their primary care provider in the last one year before their death and only one-third contact their mental health service provider.
Twice as many suicidal victims had contacted their primary care provider as against the mental health provider in the last month before suicide.
Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death worldwide and accounts for 1.2% of all deaths.
The suicide rate in the US is 10.5 per 100,000 people.
In the US, suicide is increasing in middle aged adults.
There are 10?40 non?fatal suicide attempts for every one completed suicide.
The majority of suicides completed in US are accomplished with fire arm (57%), the second leading method of suicide in US is hanging for men and poisoning in women.
Patients with prior history of attempted suicide are 5?6 times more likely to make another attempt.
Fifty percent of successful victims have made prior attempts.
One of every 100 suicidal attempt survivors will die by suicide within one year of the first attempt.
The risk of suicide increases with increase in age; however, young adults and adolescents attempt suicide more than the older.
Females attempt suicide more frequently than males but males are successful three times more often.
The highest suicidal rate is amongst those individuals who are unmarried followed by those who are widowed, separated, divorced, married without children and married with children in descending order.
Living alone increases the risk of suicide.
Unemployed and unskilled patients are at higher risk of suicide than those who are employed.
A recent sense of failure may lead to higher risk.
Clinicians are at higher risk of suicide.
The suicidal rate in male clinicians is 1.41 and in female clinicians it is 2.27.
Adverse childhood abuse and adverse childhood experiences increase the risk of suicidal attempts.
The first step in evaluating suicidal risk is to determine presence of suicidal thoughts including their concerns and duration.
Management of suicidal individual includes reducing mortality risk, underlying factors and monitoring and follow up.
Major risk for suicidal attempts is in psychiatric disorder, hopelessness and prior suicidal attempts or threats.
High impulsivity or alcohol or other substance abuse increase the risk.

Hi lybrate-user, there may or may not be a problem with you, I can not judge you by few lines that you have written. It could be that you are shy and introvert but you need affection also, so what happens you expect other people to be around and give you attention which you enjoy but may be in return you are not able to give them that much, so your efforts are not very evident and it may give impression to others that you are not trying or not interested but you are its just your personality is introverted im sure the right people stay in your life. Consult with me for counseling and therapy.
