We can treat your daughter if she struggles with Depression, which is more than merely sadness or feelings of approaching doom. It is a pervasive sense of helplessness, hopelessness and worthlessness that engulfs her life, leaving her suffering without relief. Symptoms of depression can include loss of interest in normal activities and hobbies, a change in her appetite, weight or sleep pattern, loss of energy, touchiness, self-loathing, difficulty concentrating and inexplicable aches and pains. Many people who suffer from Depression are reluctant to seek treatment, afraid of the shame that may be attached to being identified with the illness.
Clearview Horizonis an Ideal Setting to Help Your Daughter with Depression
Treatment for Depression normally calls for some level of professional assistance. Therapy might well be combined with medication to aid your daughter in regaining a more reasonable approach to life’s challenges, to help reveal root causes of the depression as well as provide effective coping strategies for dealing with the feelings of helplessness and despair. She might find symptom relief by making healthy changes in her nutritional and exercise habits, or by adding stress management techniques. Most people respond positively to treatments, and have partial or complete recovery from symptoms.
As parents, it may be difficult to identify the symptoms, because teens frequently respond to Depression with irritability rather than sadness. Your daughter may express hostility, irritability and loss of temper. Teen Depression can frequently lead to self-medication with alcohol or drugs and then to problems with schoolwork. Depression is a major cause of teen suicide, emphasizing the consequence of finding early treatment rather than hoping things will improve on their own.
