Nature, mother earth and the environment what does this have to do with depression you say. For starters, it can break your heart to find out your child is in constant pain. And you can feel as if it’s entirely your fault. Stop blaming yourself. Don’t start thinking like that it is not your fault.

Sometimes, it’s as “simple” as your teenager’s brain not making enough dopamine (which can trigger happiness). That’s something you can’t control.
Mother Nature issues
It’s imperative that you do not blame yourself. Or even try to find a single cause for your child sad mood because you did something wrong. It could be mental illness caused by external factors out of your control. Discovering your adolescent is not mentally ill. May lead to tension in your relationship. But blaming yourself or accusing other can cause much more frustration and anger. Your child needs your love and support now.
The nature of it all
And, yes, it’s easy to chalk everything up to “teenage hormones,” but this may not be the cause. Rather, those hormones going crazy will act as a catalyst and can make the depression worse or more extreme. The best thing you can do is work with your child to find something that may help overcome or even deal with their depression. Get medical professional involved as soon as possible.
It may seem complicated. Help your teenager cope with depression. Encourage family discussion, but do not force it. Talk to your teen and keep the conversation light.
