If you have a child or teen who struggles with depression, you know how painful and scary it can be. You likely feel helpless to help them. When kids and teens struggle with depression they are often sad. They also experience irritability and moodiness which impacts the whole family.
Teens who have difficulty with depression often begin to engage in risk taking behaviors. Watching your teen engage in risk taking behaviors is scary for their parents to watch. Grades may drop and they may disengage from activities they used to enjoy.
Often times parents think their child is going through a phase. In reality they are really and truly depressed. If you find yourself in the position where you think your child or teen may be struggling with depression it is helpful to get support. A therapist trained in depression counseling for children and teens can help you and your child through this time. Through depression counseling your child can learn new ways to cope with their emotions so they can live a happier healthier life.
