Teenage Depression Plagues U.S

“As many as 20% of adolescents experience one episode of clinical depression by age 18, and teens who have had one depressive episode are more likely to have a subsequent episode, according to Judy Garber, the first author on the study.”Excerpt from the Wall Street Journal Health Blog
When 20% of any group of people is depressed, you know something is very wrong. The horrific thing about this is that the stat is among adolescents, many who have not experienced the stress of marriage and long term commitment, working full time, and losing a job. What makes adolescents vulnerable then?

I would have to say the most likely and logical reasoning for depression amongst teens is the changes they are facing during those “awkward years.” Anyone old enough to call themselves a man or woman knows what I am talking about. The occurrence of puberty and the challenges of high school life make a lethal combination. Not only do teens begin to experience a change, physically, mentally, and emotionally, but they have to do this while they try and fit in at school and get good grades.

Many teens worry about fitting in, and having an active social life, but many people can be harsh and cruel, bullying kids, leading to low self-confidence. This, in teens has a devastating effect. Teenagers already have self doubts and low self-esteem because of pimples, greasy hair, and never thinking there is a world outside of high school if one is rejected by their peers, it seems like a death sentence.

Teens, I ask you to not take any sort of rejection too seriously. You are not going to fit in everywhere, with everyone, but there will be some people that will accept you. Always remember that there is a world and life outside of, and after high school, in fact after you graduate you probably won’t see most of the people from your high school. Don’t judge others before giving them a chance. Don’t bully anyone, it’s not nice and it’s why there are so many teens depressed. Don’t do drugs. I know teens hear this a lot, but not only are drugs unhealthy for your body, but drugs like marijuana are actually depressants, so while you feel good for a little bit of time you are causing more grief than happiness in the end.
