Teenage depression do they get it ??!

Question: Teenage depression do they get it !?!?
yes you can get depressed in your teenage years, i got depression at the age of 14 and my daughter has also started to suffer at the age of 15!. if you are worried about someone book an appointment with the gp!. teenagers dont open up very easily , they cant find it easy to talk about the way they are feeling especially to adults or family members as i didnt!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

im 13 and im getting tested for depression!. yes its very possible- due to the fact teens in the 21st century feel the pressure to be perfect, skinny, constantly happy barbie blondes in the world, teenagers can most definately develope depression!. in fact, depression in teens has risen since the 1970s!.

the standards for teenagers has most definately become both more "mature" in the sexual appearance sense, and if teens cannot live up to these standards, low self esteem results, in which can lead to depression!. unfortunately, depression sucks!.

ive got an ironic case though, i'm 13 years old and might have depression, right!? not necessarily ironic, except for the fact then i have to go to a psychologist!. when i grown up i desperately want to be a psychologist, and i'm extremely good at giving my friends advice and helping them with problems, but i cant help myself

funny, isnt it!? how much the world truly sucksWww@Answer-Health@Com

i think nes is asking if adults understand teenage depression!. as a seventeen-year-old who suffers from severe depression and bipolar and bpd, no, i dont really think adults get it, especially ones who have never come in contact with it!. they get overwhelmed i think and dont know how to handle their own kids, at least thats how my parents kind of reacted at first!. i dont think many adults understand the feelings teenagers get, especially depression!. =/ its very unfortunate!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

I have a son who lost his dad, and I am very aware of the signs of depression in teenagers!. Some of these include"

These I know sound terribly like normal teenager issues, but it is true, and one must get help!. But the right help!. if you are going to see a counsellor, beware, i would recommend a qualified physchologist that specialises in teenagers!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

Their peers, usually who are as insecure as the depressed teen, make them feel awful by kicking them around (either emotionally or physically), saying bad things, etc!. Then the depressed teens don't know who to turn to, and may:
A) not want to be in the spotlight and have their friends worry about them
B) not want to tell their family because they fear they will not be accepted
C) start inflicting injury on themselves, either emotionally (self-bullying) or physically (cutting, bulimia, anorexia, etc!.)Www@Answer-Health@Com

this might just be me but i dont understand the Q do you mean do teens get depressed or do adults understand teen depression!? if its do teens get depressed then yes but if its understanding teen depression then some adults like your parents dont understand it they just think you moody but if you get professional help then they understand it!. and other teens who have never had depression also dont understandWww@Answer-Health@Com
