Shining Light into Teenage Depression

Julia Koifman


Teenagers often suffer from depression, which may be caused by many reasons: poor grades, overweight, problems with friends or parents—as a result, they are upset and demotivated. Teachers sometimes find their students refusing to participate in classroom activities due to “a bad day” or “lack of energy”. They often avoid coming to school and prefer staying at home. Probably, they have depression, which is characterized as the oppression of mental activity, mainly in its emotional-volitional component. Unlike innate neurodiversity, depression is an acquired disorder that can be cured successfully with the help of clinical psychologists or psychiatrists. Nevertheless, it often accompanies the forenamed psychological or neurological disorders. This article researches depression in schoolchildren as one of the mental health conditions and how to help them overcome it and improve their school performance.
