Adolescence Depression Affects

Font : A-A+

Do teen depressions affect their adulthood?

Research says that adults who even for once had experienced an episode of major depressive disorder in adolescence are at high risk from pervasive psychosocial impairment (Journal of Abnormal Psychology, Vol. 112). For these adults, there remained an element of psychosocial impairment that can affect all aspects of their adult life like physical well-being, interpersonal relationships, quality of life etc.

Adolescents, who have had episodes of depression, remain singularly vulnerable to a relapse of the depressive episode in their adulthood as well. Apart from these episodes affecting their behavioral patterns, these depressive phases are likely to leave a mark in academic performance, marital life, and relationship with their children in adulthood.

For the above-mentioned reasons, it is of vital importance that parents of adolescents learn to identify the early signs of depression in their children and seek therapeutical interventions as early as possible.

i agree with behavioral problems in friendship because i feel it very much..... depression is a serious matter so the earlier that it is diagnosed, the earlier the treatment.

parents sometimes think talking to their child would make things better.Well let me tell you this, my dad toke me to therapy because he notice i changed alot.Well it didnt work instead i felt more alone and depressed! It`s sometimes better of to leave them alone. I have been thinking about killing myself because i feel like im useless to people.

parents should check their adolescent child if there is any sign of depression. depression is a serious matter so the earlier that it is diagnosed, the earlier the treatment.

ofcourse, it's a serious thing that should be considered.I suppose this may be the later reflection of child hood, deppression due to certain undigestive experience.
