Southern California Teen Residential Treatment

Depression


While feeling down occasionally happens to all of us, when that feeling becomes persistent and interferes with the ability of your teen or adolescent to function normally, you may need to find out more about teen depression. Depression can be debilitating for your teen or adolescent and can turn someone who is usually a happy, vibrant person into someone who has a hard time getting off the couch or out of bed. Depression in teens and adolescents is a serious problem that affects their emotions, thoughts and behavior. Depression in teens and adolescents is experienced similarly to depression in adults, however teens and adolescents are often dealing with more intense emotions and unique issues. Peer pressure and academic expectations can affect teens in many ways and for some teens and adolescents, they can lead to depression. For teens and adolescents dealing with depression, the depression seems unmanageable or overwhelming. They may not understand why they are not doing the things they normally did or why they have little or no interest in activities they used to enjoy. Many teens and adolescents with depression do not feel overly sad, instead they feel numb and disconnected from their emotions and themselves. This feeling of numbness and disconnection can make it much harder for your teen or adolescent to see the signs in themselves or feel like they want to change. Depression in teens and adolescents can have very serious consequences but with treatment, recovery is possible.
