Childhood depression

Children and adolescents can experience depression differently from adults. For younger people the symptoms can be irritability, mood swings, social withdrawal, drug use and academic deterioration.

Causes of Depression

Depression seldom has a single cause. Contributing factors can include:
⦁ Heredity — depression and mood disorders often run in families.
⦁ Biology — brain chemistry can be out of balance.
⦁ social and emotional difficulties
