Depression is a kind of disease which afflicts a person's psyche who tends to act or react in a abnormal way. Adolescence depression in other way is greatly linked to the sucide by a recent report published in a research journal . From childhood to the adolescence 15 to 20 people out of 100 may suffer from this disease at anytime one time of their age. In recent years it has been reported that suicide rate has increased  200%  and major cause is stated as depression. Depression tends to change  humen psyche that is why this is termed as psychological disorder very often .  Person afflicted with this disease shows certain characteristics which very often are accompanied with other disorders i.emood disorder,eating disorder,sleeping disorder which makes it difficult to diagnose it and due to under-diagnosed depression this worsen and leads to other serious psyche issues and sometimes ends at suicide.

it has been seen that in the last decade suicide ratio has been increased up to 200% in teenagers. 100000 samples were studied from which 2 to 3 thousands ended up with suicide  or suicide attempts in somehow. 2000 suicide  alone in USA due to this depression in adults has been reported last year. Women are most vulnerable to this disease than man.

Depression in children is hard to diagnose because they can not easily express their feelings and because  of other accompanied disorders and physicians find it hard to diagnose this . A person afflicted with this disease shows lack of interest in previously interested activities ,lack of energy and enthusiasm , rapid changing habits,sleeping andeating disorder, change in  behaviour . Person afflicted may show aggression,become stubborn,or may act rebelliously or become repellent .  This disease is even harder to diagnose in teenagers . it is masked with  risky behavior, boredome , irritabilty , change in interest, change in sleeping and eating habit,they may adopt something of purposless to engage themselves .If not diagnosed and treated well may cause serious problems in forthcoming life. That is why we can not let this to be diagnosed by physicians only, parents ,teachers,counselors,close friend whom one spent his most of time must keep check on it .


In our society children who are ignored and provided less attention or support by their parents are vulnerable . Very often child affected by home disputes of his parents over family ,martial or career matters and act abnormally or become repellent . He shows mood disorder to distract disputes most often act rebellously or suffer from self isolation . When these symptoms start to reflect its proper treatment is necessary otherwise this may convert to other health related issues

There are two types of treatment suggested by physicians . psychotherapy and pharmaceutical treatment. Person afflicted with mild depression issue may be diagnosed and treated by psychotherapy in which there are session between psychiatric and patient . It needs profound listening and attention and encouragement . It is cured in few sessions and person returns to his normal life . Intense depression can not be treated in a traditional psychotherapy it needs medication as well to cure

The adolescence period is the most vulrnerabl to depression and stress as it is  great time to climb up the  mountains of emotional and phsyche hurdles .Some can pass through overcoming these hurdles and others may find themselves overwhelmed and full of stress from  this disease and need to overcome to climb up the maturity hill. By the help and coordination betweeen parent ,teachers , couslers ,health professoinals and other caring adults this  can be avaluated and cured.
