Depression is a common problem in America. More than 19 million people suffer from different types of depression yearly.

What is Depression?

We all feel sad sometimes. These feelings usually come when we feel a sense of loss or disappointment. A good example is when we lose a loved one at death. However, we eventually feel better.

Depression is different. This is a prolonged feeling of sadness that doesn’t go away. It can last for weeks or months. In some situations, it can go on for years.

People who feel depressed are vulnerable to more serious issues such as self-harm or suicide.

What Causes Depression?

Depression can be caused by different factors. They include

How Does Depression Affect Teens and Children

Depression can have a negative impact on the growth and development of teens and children.

Children might also have slightly different symptoms from adults and teens. This might include appetite and weight problems, avoiding school, or experiencing aches.

Teens might experience bad or poor performances in social interactions or in school. They might also struggle with feelings of worthlessness.

What are the Types of Depression?

Post-partum and Perinatal Depression

As the name implies, this happens during and after pregnancy. Some symptoms include stress, anxiety, and minor sadness.

Bipolar Depression

People with bipolar depression have extreme mood swings. This alternates between extreme feelings of sadness to extreme happiness and high energy levels.

Psychotic Depression

People with psychotic depression suffer from hallucinations and delusions. In other words, they believe and live in a different reality.

Major Depressive Disorder (MDD)

This type of depression comes with severe or strong feelings of sadness and hopelessness. An episode of MDD can last for 2 weeks.

A version of MDD with fewer symptoms is persistent depressive disorder (PDD).

Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder

This affects only females. It can occur a few days before the start of menstrual periods. It comes with normal symptoms of depression.

Seasonal Affective Disorder

This is depression that occurs seasonally. Symptoms usually start around the end of fall and continue throughout winter.

Most symptoms will disappear once spring is around the corner.
