There are multiple reasons why a teenager might become depressed. For example, teens can develop feelings of worthlessness and inadequacy over School performance, social status, sexual orientation, or family life . At that point in their lives, many can't imagine life past tomorrow or any positive solution to the issue at hand.

Often, teenagers with depression will have a noticeable change in their thinking and behavior. They may have no motivation and even become withdrawn from their friends.

Teenagers with depression may sleep excessively, have a change in eating habits, and may even exhibit criminal behaviors such as DUI or shoplifting.

Suicide is also a risk for all teenagers with depression.

Many times family member desperate to help a depressed teen will turn to medication. The first medication tried is usually a type of antidepressant called a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI). Most of these drugs are not approved for those under 18 years of age. For many, these medications work for only a short time, if at all, and may make matters worse. These drugs have been shown to increase the risk of suicidal thoughts and actions in some children and adolescents.
