Managing High-School Student Depression Symptoms

Apr 11, 2008
The nightmare of mood swings among high-school-er are a normal finding and are generally considered part of the 'normal' developmental process. However, studies in developmental psychology suggest that many adolescents experiencing the blues are actually suffering from adolescent depression.

While the identical cause of young adult depression is up for discussion, few scientific discoveries show that 5% of all young adults suffer from mood disorders. Another alarming finding has been the close connection between blues in young years and major mental illness in adult life. Ill teenagers are highly prone to mental illness in later life. Further, mood disorders in young boys' and girls' years generally recurs within a short time.

Uncovering of Teenage Mood Disorder

A main determination that differentiates teenage mood disorders from depression in adults is the higher degree and more frequent occurrence of social and interpersonal challenges, leading to the low self-esteem that characterizes young adult depression. Further, youth are more prone to suicidal ideas as a consequence to their mood disorder.

Isolating themselves in relationship abilities is also more prevalent among young adults suffering from blues. Other symptoms and signs of depression in adolescents include: excessive boredom, persisting loss of interest in life itself, little concentration, anger, easily disturbed, sadness and/or crying, fascination with macabre interests in games, intolerance to even mild suggestions or rejection, eating and digestive problems, headaches, and difficulty in sleeping.

Origins of Youth Mood Disorders

A single point of interest, or just some factors, can not be confidently anticipated as responsible for causing this mental illness in adolescents. Rather, a variation of genetic (biological), mental, and environmental/social factors coordinate together to evoke mood symptoms in youth. Youth grown up in families with a history of depression are more likely to suffer from the mood swings.

Depression in youth has also been identified with the lack or poor development of relationship building skills. Another contributing glues to adolescent depression is failure or suppressed expression of sexuality; homosexuals being more prone to mental illness on this account. And so, participation in sports has been found to significantly decrease the chance of depression among adolescent patients. Seriously, perhaps, is an adolescent's level of adjustment with his/her father and mother. Young individuals having difficulty in establishing individual identity due to a problematic relationship with parents are more likely to experience mood disorders.

Interfering with Reducing Youth Chronic Sadness

Since mood disorders in teenagers leads to a big amount of possibility of committing suicide by the patient, it is necessary to determine mental assistance as soon as the symptoms of teenage depression are discovered. Paying attention and taking care of the troubled student leads to great help and so the youth leaders of suffering adolescents should become sympathetic light-towers to these helpless individuals.

Lots of community centers nowadays incorporate dealing-with strategies with depression as part of recognition against mental illness and its solutions. In any situation, it is always best to find the services of a mental health practitioner for coping with symptoms of mood disorders in teenagers.
