8 Tips to Deal With Depression In Young Adults!

Is your teenager child suffering from depression?? Young adults or teenagers are quite moody. Hormonal fluctuations leads to irritability, outburst of anger, defiant behavior, weepiness, and emotional hysteria. It is important for you to differentiate between depression, teenage drama, and other mood disorders that are likely during teenage days. Depression in your child from an early age can have serious effects late in life.

Hence, it is very important for you to deal with your teenager’s depression. Here are some important tips you should apply:

  1. Get proper diagnosis
    • A proper and accurate diagnosis of your child’s depression is very important.
    • It is the first step that you should take to be certain about the condition.
  2. Choose the right therapist or doctor
    • Finding a good therapist or doctor is the second step you need to take.
    • Take opinions of people, and explore well to come across an ideal therapist who would be perfect for dealing with your depressed teenager.
    • You may need a doctor’s assistance and advice for a long term basis, and thus it is important to choose a trustworthy doctor.
  3. Observe the negative thoughts
    • Several negative thoughts manipulate our feelings. Something that starts with a negative thought can become a source of depression and anxiety.
    • However, by recognizing these thoughts, it becomes easier to cope with them and their consequences.
  4. Outsmart the brain
    • Our brain has two sides that respond to different kinds of inputs.
    • While a negative situation confronts us, the right brain circuits come into play; while in case of positive situations, the left brain responds.
    • It is important to create a bridge across the brain, so that you can travel to both the sides.
  5. Take mood boosters
    • There are certain food items that help in uplifting your mood.
    • If you are a depressed teenager, you should consume foods containing omega-3 fatty acids which are beneficial for alleviating your depression.
    • You should take foods such as salmon, sardines, ground flaxseeds and walnuts.
    • You should also consume vitamin B12 and Folate as these produce serotonin and act as effective mood stabilizers.
  6. Quit alcohol
    • Alcohol is harmful when you are depressed and anxious, and it also alters your brain while you are a teenager. This can have adverse effects later in life.
  7. Workout
    • Working out for uplifiting your mood and distress by swimming, running, boxing, or walking provides instant relief from depression.
    • Exercises boosts the activity of serotonin and norepinehrine.
    • It also helps in stimulation of the brain chemicals that encourage the growth of nerve cells.

As a teenager suffering from depression, it is very important for you to seek help from places and people your trust. You may approach a person outside of your family as well, if you are not comfortable with letting your parents know.


Eating Disorders - How You Can Help Your Child?

Eating Disorders - How You Can Help Your Child?

If your child develops an eating disorder, you might be unsure about how to solve the problem and how to act on it. Eating disorders occur when your child tends to either eat in excess, or eats too less. The behavior of your child is also subjected to change because of an eating disorder. It is likely for him to get withdrawn, rude, and touchy. This makes it difficult for you to deal with them at a time when communication is necessary. Here are some essential tips that you should follow in dealing with eating disorders in children:

  1. You should get advice about how to talk to your child. It will help you in realizing that your child is likely to be defensive as their eating disorder is a form of coping. Hence, it is normal for a child to be reluctant about letting go of it. If your child is undergoing treatment, the treatment team has a vital role to play. However, your constant love and support are also very important.
  2. It is important to talk to your child about the condition, even though he cannot accept that he is having a problem. Communication is an essential part of treatment, which you should never ignore. You should not blame or judge your child, and refer proper resources to him. You have to be prepared for a negative response from your child.
  3. You should educate yourself properly about your eating disorder. Abstain from talking to your child about his appearance, even in the form of a compliment. Use ways for boosting your child’s self-esteem and confidence.
  4. Abstain from referring to weight problems and diets followed by other people. You need to assure your child that you will be there for him, no matter what. You should talk to him about activities he should get involved in, in a positive tone and approach.
  5. Coping with the meal times of your child suffering from an eating disorder is very important as well. Consult your child’s treatment team to know about ways of arranging your meal times ideally.
  6. Take your child out for shopping and agree on having meals that are acceptable, from both your and his end.
  7. You should have an agreement with your whole family regarding meals, which will help to set the expectations of everybody. Agree on not talking about fat content, calorie content, or portion sizes during meals.
  8. You must abstain from consuming low calorie food items in front of them. Try to keep the meal time atmosphere positive and light hearted. Do not focus on others during meal times and teach your child to concentrate on his own meal. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder - Signs And Treatment

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder - Signs And Treatment

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is an abnormal condition of the mind that develops when a person is exposed to certain traumatic events in life such as accidents, sexual assault or warfare.

The major symptoms of PTSD are:

  1. Reliving the traumatic experience over and over again; this leads to severe and long-term mental distress.
  2. Recurring dreams about the events.
  3. Provocation of traumatic thoughts by the slightest event that causes distress to the individual.
  4. Avoiding memories and thoughts that might remind them of the event.
  5. Developing a negative view of themselves and the world.
  6. Developing social or specific phobias.


  1. Medication and antidepressants: Medicines such as paroxetine, sertraline and selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) help the individual address insomnia related problems that occur due to PTSD and suppress nightmares.
  2. Psychotherapy: This form of therapy is used to cure both mental health conditions (such as obsessive compulsive disorder, anxiety and depression) as well as emotional problems that result from PTSD. Skilled mental health experts are needed for this form of treatment to be administered. They would listen to each individual patiently and provide effective strategies to give solutions to the problems. Some of these therapies are:
    1. Cognitive behavioural therapy: This therapy enables the individual to adapt to changes and recognize thought patterns which lead to irrational and negative behaviour and actions.
    2. Exposure therapy: This therapy causes the affected individual to first become anxious by exposing him/her to the traumatic memories, situations and objects by simulating them. The therapy helps the person to overcome his/her fears and become comfortable in the same environment that had previously caused fear and anxiety.
    3. Group therapy: This popular and effective form of therapy allows the individual to share his/her feelings, fears and thoughts with a group of people who have themselves experienced similar trauma in their lives. Sharing such experiences helps reduces stress levels.

Some Self-Help and Coping Tips include:

  1. Avoiding situations that cause PTSD can worsen the condition. Hence, the individual should try to embrace and face such situations boldly.
  2. PTSD can result in loss of motivation and stress. Try utilizing your time in socialising, indulging in certain or even exercising for that matter.
  3. Taking some time out to relax and having fun is very important. This calms the body and mind, thereby improving one’s mood. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist.

My cousin is recovering from psychosis. She is 19 year old now. She had symptoms in the age of 18 and symptoms become OK after 10 days after taking respideral2 mg and censpram lite.

Hello lybrate-user you cousin have some sort of psychosis it may be due to any disorder like schizophrenia, Bipolar disorder, Depression, Acute Psychotic disorders etc. The prognosis of the Psychotic disorders depends on the Disorder what he was suffering like schizophrenia have most poor outcome, and Acute Psychotic disorders has most favorable course. Recovery also depends on the treatment whether he is taking right medications for right duration. Sometimes premature termination of the treatment can lead to reappearance of the Disorder so it's advisable to continue medications for atleast one year and if needed more than it. Patients with psychosis can live life like a normal person. They have to keep in touch with psychiatrist until they completely remit from their disorders.

Suffering From Insomnia - 7 Lifestyle Changes You Must Do!

Sleep is the most essential part of our lives because it is the time when our body gets rejuvenated and recharged. However, due to numerous reasons, quite a few individuals fail to achieve proper sleep or any sleep at all. This condition in which a person is unable to sleep at night can be termed as insomnia.

Causes of insomnia
There can be varied reasons for different people that can cause insomnia.

  • Unhealthy lifestyle i.e. improper sleep cycle, improper food habits, untimely naps, substance abuse etc.
  • Medical conditions like sinus allergies, gastrointestinal problems, endocrine problems, arthritis, asthma, neurological condition like Parkinson’s disease, chronic back pain etc.
  • Psychological conditions like depression and anxiety
  • Certain medications aimed to cure other health problems

In case of the treatable medical reasons, insomnia is gone once the problem is treated. However, for people who have no idea as to why they suffer from insomnia, here are certain tips that can help in fighting it.

Lifestyle changes to cure insomnia
Starting with a significant lifestyle change can be a great way to change one’s sleep cycles and get a good night’s sleep.

  • Maintain a proper and healthy diet, with more fruits and vegetables and less carbs and fat.
  • Try to sleep and wake up at the same time everyday (despite the fact that you may not feel sleepy). This will train the body and regulate the body clock.
  • Avoid afternoon naps or any short naps during the day.
  • Exercise daily for at least 30 minutes.
  • Avoid caffeine as it has contains properties that keeps a person up for long hours.
  • Avoid intake of alcohol and nicotine. Although alcohol is associated with fun and partying, it is actually a depressant and causes improper sleep.
  • Avoid any meal right before bed time.

Tips that can help

  • Take a good, warm shower right before sleep.
  • Ask your partner to give you a nice massage before bedtime.
  • Restrict bed activities to sleep and sex only, nothing more.
  • Make a really comfortable and inviting sleep environment.
  • Try and get rid of all your worries before going to bed.
  • Reduce stress using a number of stress reduction therapies like meditation, deep breathing, progressive muscle relaxation techniques, etc.

Apart from the lifestyle changes and the tips that will help you gain a better sleep, there is another therapy, which may be useful. It is called the cognitive behavioural therapy. This therapy can give essential knowledge about sleep and help achieve normal sleep routines. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist.
