How Visions Adolescent Treatment Centers Can Help Your Teen With Their Depression
What Causes Depression in Teens
Depression in teens, just like in adults can result from performing poorly in areas they expected to excel. For example, he or she expects to do well in class so when the results come out and they are below his or her expectations, they may feel worthless and inadequate. Other factors that can lead to teen depression include social status with peers, family life, and sexual orientation. Many also become depressed if they lose a family member or a close friend, if they are involved in independence conflicts with their parents, if they breakup with a boyfriend, or when bullied or harassed at school or elsewhere.
You can tell if your teen is depressed by observing any combination of the following symptoms;
- Difficulty in concentration
- Unexplained pains all over the body
- Irresponsible behavior such as forgetting obligations
- Use of drugs
- Episodes of memory loss
- Anxiety, sadness and hopelessness
- Withdrawal from friends and family
- Use of drugs

They get to learn that everyone faces daily challenges and that each challenge can be solved in a unique way. There is never a need to engage in destructive behavior just because one is stressed. If you let emotions get the better of you, it will not just affect you, it will affect your family, friends, and even your future. At Visions, these teens learn to recognize and change behavior and problematic attitudes that may trigger relapse. The family is usually involved in the treatment process to foster understanding and encourage collective effort.
