We Help Teens with Depression

We can help your daughter if she suffers from Depression, which is more than simply sadness or a feeling of impending doom.  It is an omnipresent sensation of hopelessness, despondency and worthlessness that surrounds her life, leaving her in distress without relief.  Symptoms of depression can include loss of interest in once-enjoyed activities and hobbies, changes in appetite, weight or sleep, reduced energy, irritability, self-hatred, a hard time concentrating and inexplicable aches and pains.  Many people do not accurately understand Depression, and some who suffer from it are disinclined to seek treatment, troubled by the shame that may be attached to being identified with the illness.

Helping Girls with Depression is Why We’re Here

Treatment for depression normally requires at least some level of professional assistance.  Therapy might well be combined with medication to help your daughter in regaining a more balanced approach to life’s challenges, allowing her to reveal root causes of the depression as well as provide effective coping strategies for dealing with the feelings of helplessness and anguish.  She might find respite of symptoms by making healthy changes in her nutritional and exercise habits, or by adding stress management techniques.  Most people respond well to treatments, and have partial or total recovery from symptoms.

As parents, it may be difficult to recognize the symptoms, because the more normal response to it in teens is petulance rather than sorrow.  Your daughter may demonstrate enmity, crabbiness and loss of temper.  Teen depression can often lead to self-medication with drugs or alcohol, and create problems with schoolwork.  Depression is a also a major cause of teen suicide, emphasizing the consequence of seeking treatment early for problems rather than hoping things will work out on their own.
