Teen Depression Awareness

Teen Depression Awareness

Teen depression is a serious and sometimes overlooked mental health concern affecting adolescents.This problem is characterized by persistent feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and a loss interest in once-enjoyed activities. Factors like academic stress, social pressures, and hormonal changes can contribute to its development. Early recognition and support are crucial in helping teens manage their depression and prevent long-term consequences. It’s essential for parents, educators, and peers to be vigilant, offer emotional support, and encourage affected teenagers to seek professional help when needed.

If you or anyone you know is going through a similar struggle please speak up before its too late.
