Teen depression? You are not alone — help is available
Everyone can feel sad and moody from time to time, but normally these feelings pass. Feelings that are more intense and long-lasting may be depression. Depression can strike anyone at any age, but it can be particularly hard to deal with during teenage years, which are already difficult in so many ways.
Depression is a real brain illness or health problem. Fortunately, it’s a treatable one, and at Alta Behavioral Healthcare we have helped hundreds of teens escape the weight of depression and go on to lead happy lives.
The National Institute of Mental Health has lots of valuable information on recognizing the signs of Teen Depression, and what can be done to help young people suffering from it.
