Helping Girls with Depression at New Lifehouse
Many people do not accurately understand Depression, and many who suffer from it are hesitant to ask for help, concerned by the stigma that may be identified with the illness. We can help your daughter if she struggles with Depression, which is more than simply feeling sad. It is an omnipresent sense of hopelessness, bleakness and despair that engulfs her life, leaving her to suffer without relief. Symptoms of depression can include irritability, self-hatred, difficulty concentrating, loss of interest in once-favorite hobbies, changes in sleep patterns, appetite or weight, or reduced energy.
As parents, it may be difficult to recognize the symptoms, because the more normal response to it in teens is petulance rather than despondency. Your daughter may show enmity, crabbiness and loss of temper. Teen Depression often leads to self-medication, and creates problems with schoolwork. Depression is also a major cause of teen suicide, emphasizing the importance of getting problems treated early instead of hoping things will simply improve on their own.
Treatment for Depression normally calls for at least some professional assistance. Therapy might well be combined with medication to assist your child in regaining a more reasonable approach to life’s challenges, to uncover origins of the Depression, and to offer coping strategies for the feelings of helplessness and desolation. She might find respite from symptoms by making healthy changes in her nutritional and exercise regimens, or by learning stress management techniques. Most people respond well to treatments, and have partial or complete recovery from symptoms.
