Childhood Depression Clinical Trial

Depression is more than just feeling a little sad or having a rough day. For someone with depression, the feelings of sadness can last a long time. Depression can affect children and adolescents of all ages.

Young people with depression may show symptoms that seem different from adult symptoms. Children and adolescents who have depression may complain that they don’t feel well, may refuse to go to school, or may worry that a loved one may leave or die. Sudden changes in weight or in sleep patterns may also be signs of depression. Older teenagers may get into trouble at school or show reduced interest in activities they used to enjoy, such as playing sports or spending time with friends.

You don’t have to suffer in silence

According to the journal Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Clinics of North America, it is estimated that approximately 1 percent to 2 percent of children and 3 percent to 8 percent of adolescents have depression.
