Thank you for calling attention to Teen Depression. I know from personal experience what it’s like to live with this illness. Having someone to talk to helps a lot.
Having strong family relationships as well as friendships really help teens during their difficult time of transition from childhood to adulthood. I like the idea of having a list of resources as well.
Amanda, Family support can be quite helpful for some children especially during the difficult times of their life.
My oldest daughter struggled with bulimia and depression when she was in high school. THankfully she kicked both in the butt.
Kelly Hutchinson, You are lucky and I am so happy for your daughter some kids continue to battle Bulimia & depression into adult years.
This is great information. I am going to pass along to my cousin who volunteers at a teen program.
It’s important that we maintain a close relationship with our kids, as well make sure they are feeling okay from time to time. Thanks for sharing these signs and tips.
Amazing article, this is very helpful abd I’m sure all parents should have read this. I’d like to share this.
My kiddos aren’t quite teens yet. But I hope I never have to go through this with them. I at least now know how to watch for it, and what to do. So I’ll be saving this post.
I think I’ve mentioned it before, but the cutting is so serious in the junior and high school crowd. It seems to be a new trend and I am def. wondering if it is linked to depression (I honestly do not know). I do see friends my daughter has had doing it like it is nothing… and it saddens me, more than I can say.
Parents should really watch out for these signs as teens don’t normally open up to their parents. It’s also good to know that there is a hotline they can call if they don’t feel like talking to professionals.
Thank you for shining the light on Teen Depression and how to deal with it!! It is already hard to get teens to open up and share their feelings.
