35. depression

People treat depression as a joke- Remember I am no doctor and I can't diagnose that you are depressed so please if you think you are depressed you should talk to someone (school Councilor, doctor or a trusted adult) Don't joke about it. Depression is a lot more serious than you think.

This is a bit about depression but from a website called YouthBeyondBlue which is about depression-

What is depression?

 It’s a serious illness that leaves you feeling down most of the time and finding it hard to cope from day to day.

You may not for example, enjoy doing the following things anymore - playing sport, doing well at school or work, or hanging out with friends and family.

Having depression is not just feeling down for a day or two, it’s when the symptoms go on for two weeks or longer.

The good news is that getting the right type of help, and getting it early, can make it much easier for you get back on track and deal with depression.

Sometimes people say that adolescence is the best time of our lives.  For many young people it is.  For others, it can be a really challenging time - wanting independence, trying to fit in, new relationships, working things out with family and friends, and just coping with the day-to-day highs and lows.

Who can get it?

Did you know that around 160,000 young people aged 16-24 years live with depression, so it’s a common illness. Girls are more likely than boys to get depression, but boys often find it harder to talk about their feelings and get help.

Around one in five young people will have experienced depression by the time they reach adulthood.

Causes of Depression?

Often, people think you “get depressed” because something’s gone wrong with your life – for example, you’ve gone through a bad break-up or failed an exam. However, research shows that usually, there isn’t one reason for a person developing depression. 

.It’s not easy to say exactly what causes depression — it’s different for each person.

Other negative things can increase your chance of getting depression for example:

being abused or bullied feeling that you are doing badly at work or school having bad experiences with your family (especially when you were young). family history of mental illness parents having depression or another mental illness family arguments, separation, divorce brothers or sisters moving out of home poor self esteem not getting on with friends or family not coping stress not being able to talk to people not having people to talk to being in debt putting yourself down feeling lonely.
