Depression in Teens vs. Depression in Adults Depression in teens can look very different from depression in adults. The following symptoms of depression are more common in teenagers than in their adult counterparts: Irritable or angry mood – As noted above, irritability, rather than sadness, is often the predominant mood in depressed teens. A depressed teenager may be grumpy, hostile, easily frustrated, or prone to angry outbursts. Unexplained aches and pains - Depressed teens frequently complain about physical ailments such as headaches or stomachaches. If a thorough physical exam does not reveal a medical cause, these aches and pains may indicate depression.
Teens vs. Adults Extreme sensitivity to criticism - Depressed teens are plagued by feelings of worthlessness, making them extremely vulnerable to criticism, rejection, and failure. This is a particular problem for “over-achievers.” Withdrawing from some, but not all people - While adults tend to isolate themselves when depressed, teenagers usually keep up at least some friendships. However, teens with depression may socialize less than before, pull away from their parents, or start hanging out with a different crowd.
Some Causes of Depression: 1. _______________ Accident Death in family 2. __________________ Being diagnosed with an illness Learning you only have so long to live
Effects of teen depression The negative effects of teenage depression go far beyond a melancholy mood. Many rebellious and unhealthy behaviors or attitudes in teenagers are actually indications of depression.
Untreated Depression can lead to… Problems at school Depression can cause low energy and concentration difficulties. At school, this may lead to poor attendance, a drop in grades, or frustration with schoolwork in a formerly good student. Running away Many depressed teens run away from home or talk about running away. Such attempts are usually a cry for help. Substance abuse Teens may use alcohol or drugs in an attempt to “self-medicate” their depression. Unfortunately, substance abuse only makes things worse. Low self-esteem Depression can trigger and intensify feelings of ugliness, shame, failure, and unworthiness.
Continued… Eating disorders Anorexia, bulimia, binge eating, and yo-yo dieting are often signs of unrecognized depression. Internet addiction Teens may go online to escape from their problems. But excessive computer use only increases their isolation and makes them more depressed. Self-injury Cutting, burning, and other kinds of self-mutilation are almost always associated with depression.
Continued… Reckless behavior Depressed teens may engage in dangerous or high-risk behaviors, such as reckless driving, out-of-control drinking, and unsafe sex. Violence Some depressed teens (usually boys who are the victims of bullying) become violent. As in the case of the Columbine school massacre, self-hatred and a wish to die can erupt into violence and homicidal rage. Suicide Teens who are seriously depressed often think, speak, or make "attention-getting" attempts at suicide. Suicidal thoughts or behaviors should always be taken very seriously.
Helping a depressed teenager… If you suspect that a teenager in your life is suffering from depression, take action right away. Depression is very damaging when left untreated, so don’t wait and hope that the symptoms will go away. Even if you’re unsure that depression is the issue, the troublesome behaviors and emotions you’re seeing are signs of a problem. Whether or not that problem turns out to be depression, it still needs to be addressed - the sooner the better.
Lesson 5 note sheet Suicide: the act of intentionally taking one’s life, is a by-product of mental illness that is TREATABLE! Each day, 1500 Americans attempt it and 80 succeed.
