Becoming Aware of Youth Chronic Sadness

Apr 12, 2008
Mood swings among young people are a always-occurring finding and are normally considered part of the 'normal' growing-up process. However, findings in developmental psychology identify that many youth experiencing mood swings are actually suffering from teenage depression.

While the identical reason of adolescent mood disorder is up for discussion, some scientific discoveries show that 5% of all boys and girls suffer from depressive disorders. Another alarming finding has been the close connection between depression in teenage years and major mental illness in adult life. Depressed teenagers are highly susceptible to mental illness in later life. Further, mood disorders in adolescent years usually recurs within a few years.

Causes of Adolescent Mood Disorders

A single point, or just several points, can't be confidently considered as responsible for causing mood disorders in youth. Rather, a combination of genetic (biological), psychological, and environmental/social factors coordinate together to begin mood symptoms in teenagers. Adolescents born in families with a history of mood disorders are more likely to suffer from the depression.

Mood disorders in high-school pupils has also been discovered with the lack or poor development of relationship building skills. Another contributing consideration to adolescent depression is failure or suppressed expression of hormonal growth; other and odd oriented individuals being more prone to mental illness on this account. Equally, participation in sports has been found to significantly decrease the chance of mood disorders among young individuals. Seriously, perhaps, is an adolescent's level of adjustment with his/her father and mother. Teenagers having difficulty in establishing individual identity due to a problematic relationship with parents are more likely to experience this illness.

Signs and Symptoms of Young Adult Mood Disorder

A principal difference that differentiates child depression challenges from mood disorders in adults is the higher degree and more frequent occurrence of social and interpersonal inabilities, leading to the low self-esteem that defines teenage mood disorders. And also, young adults are more vulnerable to suicidal tendencies in response to their feelings of helplessness.

Defining themselves socially is also more prevalent among teenagers suffering from mental inabilities. Other signs and symptoms of depression in young adults include: overly bored, continuous loss of interest in life itself, loss of concentration, anger, easily irritated, sadness and/or crying, obsession with gruesome discussions in games, intolerance to even mild suggestions or rejection, eating and digestive problems, headaches, and sleeplessness.

Intervention for Removing Adolescent Mood Disorders

Because of depression symptoms in youth invokes a great likelihood of committing suicide by the patient, it is necessary to locate mental assistance as soon as the signs of teenage depression are noticed. Paying attention and caring for the troubled patient leads to wonderful resolution and so the family and friends of hurting young adults should become loving care-takers to them.

Several teachers these days begin resolution methods with depression as part of awareness against depression and its dangers. In any situation, it is always a good idea to seek the services of a Psychiatrist for coping with patients with depressions in adolescents.
