Depression in Teens

Depression is a severe mental disorder that lasts for at least two weeks which invokes feelings of irritability, persistent sadness, or hostility. Depression is more than the usual sadness or moodiness. Specific genetics can make young people more vulnerable to depression, but in most cases, teen depression is triggered by stressful situations such as substance abuse in the family, bullying, divorce, trauma, and or the social settings in a school. When things go wrong, teenagers tend to react differently. Unrealistic social, family and academic expectations can create a strong sense of rejection among young people which led to deep disappointment that eventually result in depression.

Types of Teenager Depression Disorders

It may not be easy to tell when your child is experiencing depression. Some of the common teen depression disorders include:

  • Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder: Some of the common symptoms of this disorder include aggression, irritability, and frequent physical and verbal resistance. The teen exhibits consistent signs of unhappiness, hopelessness, disinterest, and worthlessness. At this point, the teenager is forced into thinking about suicide.
  • Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder: This disorder is mostly associated with the hormonal changes that occur before a menstrual cycle and a few days after the start of menstruation, and they will be gone immediately the period ends.
  • Major Depressive Disorder: With this type of disorder, the depression can last from the two-week period to several years with frequent reoccurrences. The teenager will display a significant change in their mood and loss of interest in some of the activities they considered a hobby. In most cases, the primary depressive disorder is treated as a long-term condition.
  • Adjustment Disorder: This is short-term and stress-related, and it will mainly occur within three months of an event. Teenagers with this type of disorder will experience poor performance in school, irritable mood, and sleep disturbances. The depression could just be an adjustment from moving to a new town, financial difficulties within the family, break up with a close friend or coping with a divorce of the parents.
  • Persistent Depressive Order: This type of depressive disorder is sometimes referred to as dysthymia. Although it’s less severe, it is a more chronic form of depression. A persistent depressive disorder can prevent the teen from living life to its fullest and cooperating in performing the daily activities as expected.

If your child shows any of the above signs of teen depression, contact Pathways as soon as possible so that we start helping your kid before the depression becomes worse.

Signs & Symptoms of a Depressed Teen

Statistics from the National Survey on Drug and Health indicate that at least 8.2 percent of children aged between 12 and 17 years suffered from depression in 2011. However, most of these teenagers didn’t receive treatment. This shows the importance of recognizing depression symptoms and warning signs in teenagers; otherwise, it’s most likely that the minor will not receive any help. Knowing the common signs of depression in teens will help a parent identify the problem early enough and take the right steps. Here are the most common symptoms and warning signs of depression among teenagers.

  • Social withdrawal: Socializing is always one of the critical aspects of any teen’s life. But if your child’s social circle has shrunk rapidly, then this may be a clear sign of depression. Although teens may keep some friends even when they are depressed, unlike adults, if there is a rapid reduction in the number of friends the teen is socializing with, then it is a critical warning sign that you should be aware of.
  • Irritability, Feelings of Hopelessness, and Uncontrolled Anger: The myth that a depressed teen will always be quiet and unconcerned with what is happening around him/her is untrue. In fact, a depressed teen displays dominant emotions of irritability and anger. In most cases, teens and especially boys, who have been victims of bullying, may become extremely aggressive and violent. Sometimes the minor may also show a pessimistic view of life or the world. Hopelessness is a critical warning sign of depression.
  • Changes in Their Sleep Patterns: Most teens who are depressed tend to become active at night, and this may push them to a point where he/she may struggle to wake up for school in the morning. They may also want to do nothing but sleep all day. If you recognize excessive tiredness in your child early in the morning, then ask him/her if she is having trouble sleeping at night and try to determine the cause of the problem.
  • Abrupt Loss of Interest in Sports: If your child has been enjoying playing football or participating in athletics but abruptly loses interest in such activities, this could be an indicator that he/she is stressed. Although changing interests is normal, it has to be gradual and not abrupt.
  • Becomes Sensitive to Criticism: Although minors tend to display exaggerated reactions to certain situations, being overly sensitive to common criticism is an indicator that the minor is depressed. Being oversensitive could be a sign that your child is feeling low and something is wrong.
  • Problems at School: Depression can result in low energy and concentration difficulties which may lead to poor attendance and performance at school. Sometimes, a student who has always scored good grades may suddenly start being frustrated with schoolwork.
  • Low-Self-Esteem: Depression has a way of triggering or intensifying feelings of failure, shame, unworthiness, and ugliness among teenagers.
  • Drug and Alcohol Abuse: When things get worse, affected teens usually turn to drugs and alcohol as a way of self-medicating against the evident effects of depression. However, substance abuse can only make things worse.

Don’t sit back and relax hoping that the depression will go away with time. Reach Pathways teen depression specialists for help any time you discover the above signs in your child.

Suicide Warning Signs to Watch for in Depressed Teenagers

In most cases, teens who are severely depressed and abuse drugs may decide to commit suicide as a way of solving their problems. They often think about or make attempts to take away their lives, and unfortunately, the number of successful suicide attempts among teens is on the rise. You should act swiftly and talk to a teen depression expert if your child shows any of the following suicide warning signs in depressed teens.

  • Giving away their most treasured possessions
  • Writing stories or poems about death or suicide
  • Talking about committing suicide
  • Saying goodbye to family members and friends as if it is the last time they see each other
  • Pronouncing terms such as “there is no way out,” “I’d better die,” or “I wish I could leave forever.”
  • Engaging in reckless behavior without care
  • Speaking positively about suicide or death

How to Help a Depressed Teenager

If you suspect that your child is depressed, then raise your concerns in a loving and caring manner to determine the cause of the depression. Even if you’re in doubt whether it’s depression, talk to him/her and address the problem. Open up and let your kid know that there are specific worrying signs that you’ve noticed, and you feel something is wrong then ask the child to share what he/she is going through with you. Hold back from asking a lot of questions and be ready to listen.

  • Open the Right Channels of communication: In your dialogue with your young, focus on listening and not lecturing. You should try to resist any urge of criticizing or being judgmental once your kid opens up. The most important thing is that your child is communicating how they feel and the best thing you can do is to let the teen understand that you are always there for him or her, fully and unconditionally. Acknowledge how they feel and don’t try to talk your child out of depression even if you think that their feelings or concerns are silly.
  • Encourage Social Connection: More than 90 percent of depressant teens tend to withdraw from their close friends, family members and even the activities that they used to enjoy. However, isolation only makes the depression worse. The best thing you can do at this stage is helping your kid reconnect. Set aside a fraction of time each day when you are just focused on your young one without any distractions. The simple act of connecting face to face with your kid can play a crucial role in reducing your child’s depression.
  • Encourage Your Child to Volunteer: One of the most potent antidepressants and self-esteem booster id doing things for others. You can help your kid find a cause that he/she is interested in and which gives him/her a deep sense of purpose. If it is something that you can do, then you should spare some time and volunteer with them since it offers a perfect opportunity for deep bonding.
  • Prioritize Physical health: Physical and mental health is deeply connected. Depression can sometimes be as a result of poor nutrition, inactivity, or inadequate sleep. Most of the teens usually have unhealthy habits such as eating a lot of junk food, staying awake up to late, and spending long hours on their smartphones. All these behaviors can lead to depression. As a parent, you can help combat some of these bad habits by fostering a healthy and supportive home environment. You can achieve this goal by providing nutritious and well-balanced diet, setting limits on screen time and involving the kid in some light physical activities at home. You should also encourage your child to have a plenty sleep for at least nine hours per night.
  • Seek Professional Help: Don’t hesitate to take your kid to a teen depression treatment center in Utah when the conditions of depression become worse. We have a team of well-trained professionals with a strong background in handling depressed teens.

Teen Depression Treatment Options

Once you bring your teen to our teenage depression rehab center, we undertake a series of evaluations that help our treatment team better understand the teen depression disorder or depression. The purpose of the assessment is to determine whether the child has attempted any forms of self-medicating. The results of the evaluation provide a bigger picture of the condition of your teenager and will prepare our medical treatment to fight with any other co-existing disorders. We will then come up with a comprehensive treatment plan based on the evaluation results to help you young ones regain his/her normal life. Our treatment options include:

  • Interpersonal Therapy: This aspect of treatment primarily focuses on assisting the teenager to develop healthier relationships with the other people both at home and at school.
  • Psychotherapy: In our psychotherapy program, we offer teens brilliant opportunities to explore events and feelings that are painful or troubling them. The purpose is psychotherapy is teaching the teenagers how to cope with such feelings and thoughts.
  • Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy: This type of therapy is focused on helping the teens change negative patterns of thinking and behavior.
  • Medication: Medication isn’t always used in dealing with teen depression treatment, but it is still an option. Medication seeks to manage other symptoms that the teen may be showing effectively. Medication is eased out of the system as the teenager learns coping mechanisms. However, the use of medication such as antidepressants may allow for proper care.

💚💚💚Pathways wholeness Center is undoubtedly a divinely built and Powerful program that shifted my belief system and overall quality of life.Throughout my life I have experienced sexual abuse, drug and alcohol abuse, and deep negative belief systems. Although on the surface I had great success in life, I have never felt whole and healthy until working with Michelle and the amazing staff at pathways.Rather than just putting a bandaid on the surface to cover the cause of my trauma/addiction, Pathways worked on the core cause of the trauma, while healing problems from the inside out. The philosophy and execution of this program is absolutely life-changing.The facility is very clean and nice. They provide great nutritious meals and comfortable living conditions. Lots of fun hiking trips, and social interaction while learning to have joy without using drugs or alcohol. The staff is second to none, full of love and willing to help however they can.

I came to Pathways to get help with severe anxiety and depression. I had tried medication after medication, therapy, ketamine treatments, exercise, and diet changes but I still heavily struggled to get myself to do the most basic of human tasks. With the help and unconditional support of staff and mutual clients, I was able to build a foundation of self love and hope. They focus not on what’s wrong with you, but on what’s good. They teach you that everyone is already happy and whole and they work with you individually and in a group setting to help you start believing it. I can’t explain how safe and comforted I feel with this facility and all the incredible staff. Inpatient is warm and welcoming, the beds are amazing, and food is great. Outpatient is welcoming and so incredibly helpful. Everyone is ridiculously patient with you and your struggles/needs. I highly recommend this to anyone struggling with mental health or addiction.

I have been amazed at the difference Pathways has made in the life of my son. I researched several centers and everything was about the money until I talked to Michelle. I could genuinely feel her concern from our first phone call. I have seldom found someone so committed to making a difference. She allowed my son to stay even when we were still trying to work out insurance. She said, "I want to do things the right way." Michelle has kept all of her promises to my son and allowed him to trust again. Michelle, Katrina, Wendy and the rest of the team never gave up through some very difficult moments. We finally have a diagnosis which is allowing us to move forward with a plan. The genuine love given freely at Pathways is giving my son back his life. We will be forever grateful.

Pathways has been an amazing program for me. I travelled from out of state to participate in the program and it was worth every mile of red-eye travel. It took me a few weeks to really be open to the style of treatment they provide, however, the patience and understanding allowed me to truly find my authentic self and begin the process to heal from my trauma. I enjoyed the fitness recreation part of the program that encourages a healthy body for a health mental well being. Our bodies require a healthy hygiene routine, so our mental wellness also requires a proper routine to maintain healthy “mental hygiene.”

Michelle and the team at Pathways are a godsend. My husband has been struggling with a serious mental illness for over a decade which eventually led to dangerous self medication. Life became unmanageable. Five years ago, he recognized he needed help, and has been to countless (10+) treatment centers since. Before checking into Pathways, he was inpatient at Odyssey House and sober for 5 months. While there, he was hospitalized 3 times for his mental health. We were desperate for support, but couldn't find it outside of treatment for acute mental health episodes and addiction as a primary diagnosis. Like many others, his primary diagnosis is his mental illness, and his substance abuse is a symptom of that. Pathways sees that, and treats that. Pathways is the first place he's been where he truly feels like he has the support he needs to begin his unique, individual journey to healing. Pathways treats the individual, not the label or diagnosis. They have helped my husband identify the root causes of his illness, and have helped him connect the dots, find the common threads, between his mental health and substance abuse.Their approach to treating the whole person, the individual and their loved ones, is unparalleled. They recognize the importance of love, support and connection, and invite families to be a part of the healing process. Michelle is exceptional-  extraordinarily dedicated, brilliant and connected. Her progressive approach and genuine care have given us real hope and optimism for the first time in years. Thank you, Pathways, for helping my husband become healthy and whole.

I appreciate all that Pathways has done for me. They brought me to a place where I can use my voice and stand up for myself. I worked on affirmations and realized as I kept repeating the affirmations that they became true. The belief changes changed my life. Turning a negative belief that I believed to be true because of what was told to me as a child to a positive statement gave me a chance to live my life in a healthy way. Having the opportunity at Pathways made my life better and I am grateful to have met everyone such as Michelle. Michelle gave me (and my mom) the help that I need and deserve. I feel as though Pathways saved me. I am now able to live a positive and successful life as I continue my journey. Thank you to everyone at Pathways and I appreciate all that you have done for my family and I. Katie, New Jersey

Coming into Pathways I was struggling pretty intensely and trying to really discover who I was. After being here for the last few months I've been able to gain a sense of identity and purpose that I didn't know was possible. It's fantastic to see that the staff is so invested in everyone's individual needs. Even though there are hiccups here and there - the messaging is consistent and the care is just phenomenal. I wouldn't be able to move forward as I am today without their help.

I showed up to Pathways in very bad shape. Struggling with a ~10 year addiction, I had given up on myself. Laying in my bed, tossing and turning, I called a friend and said "take me back to treatment." She didn't even tell me where she was taking me. Michelle welcomed me with open arms. "We will get you down to Glenwood, and start loving on you." That's exactly what happened. I've been to many treatment centers but Pathways showed me how to shed the identity of "I am a drug addict." I was taught how to change my thoughts. Who would have thought that gaining self awareness/self love would allow me to be more in control, more stable, worthy, good enough, and believe that I DO MATTER?! The inpatient facility in Glenwood was where my recovery began. In one group we did a belief change where the recovery staff didn't let me back down. They pushed me in a healthy way until I blurted out "if I was good enough, I wouldn't need substances to get me through my day!" I'm a 31 year old man and I cried. The next couple days I was still in shock from the massive light bulb that went off. I became aware that I was a prisoner to my thoughts. My life has been changed forever. Michelle, the OWNER, has been present throughout my entire treatment, constantly checking in with me to see where I am--mentally/physically. My own parents don't offer me the love and care that I receive from Pathways. The transition from inpatient to day treatment was perfectly timed. I am currently living in their sober house and still to this day, ALL my needs are met. I've been given the opportunity at a new life. I realized that I hit 120 days clean yesterday. I went from wanting to throw my life away to being excited about what my future holds. I still have my ups and downs, but I have this new shiny set of tools to get me through each day. I remember (day 1 of my recovery) sitting on the couch in the front office, miserable, thinking who the hell are these people?...why are they treating me so well?...if they only knew the kind of person I am...I don't deserve this love and support. Pathways treats you like the beautiful, capable human being that you are. Thank you Michelle, thank you Pathways.

We were in need of helping one of my children with addiction/anxiety problem. We personally visited a number of facilities because I felt I would get a better feel for which would be the best fit. At that time my son was in a week detox facility. When we met Michelle she was able to explain how the process would be approached, the flow from addiction through recovery process. She was straight forward explaining this is a process with phases that blend together depending on how the person is taking responsibility for their own recovery, etc. She said she wanted to go to the detox facility and meet with my son, which she did. She had told us that she would be glad to pick him up and personally drive him to the Glenwood facility and start the program if we wanted. Which she did as well. I learned Michelle has many years of experience in this field of healthcare and has developed a system so to speak that aims at the core of addictions, etc to get to the true causes of why this is happening. My son has been a challenge in that he would not participate much in the beginning at Pathways. Everyone on the Pathways team were patient with him, showed him respect and love which I can’t thank them enough for. My sons respect for Michelle, Wendy & Bev (and the rest of the staff) began growing as I could hear it in his voice when we had phone conversations. I could feel it in his hugs when we visited. He is seeing things from a different perspective now than before he entered Pathways and to me that is a direct reflection of the top of the Pathways organization. On top of all that, they helped us maneuver through the insurance process, getting that in order so the finances were addressed. We made the right decision coming to Pathways because they really love my son and know he will get even better and better. I fully recommend Michelle and the Pathways organization to anyone reading this today! Thankyou Michelle!

Pathways is an amazing facility! They have completely transformed my life into hope and happiness. I suffered from a brain injury that really impacted my life severely. After a month I already noticed improvement in my mood and how I felt about life after my injury. I have now been treated for 5 months and I feel happy, hopeful, and optimistic about my life. It has forever changed, but now I see the good thanks to Pathway!

This facility is not your typical residential treatment center, this program is a program of choice and that’s huge for those seeking recovery! I recommend this place!

I am so absolutely grateful for this program: it has saved my life . The bottom line for me is I have never loved myself. I have never realized how the brain is effected by childhood trauma and abuse. I learn so much about the disease of addiction. I’ve learned so much about why I have been the way I have been my whole life . The therapists are so amazing and full of knowledge and support . I didn’t have anywhere to go from treatment and they welcomed me with open arms . The program is based on learning to love yourself so that you have the tools and confidence to make a beautiful life for yourself. I have never felt so much love and kindness in a program before . I have been trying to get clean for over a decade. This is the first time I feel solid HOPE. If I wouldn’t hav found pathways I don’t know where I would be : thank you so much Payhways for saving my life and assisting me in the recovery of a broken soul. ❤️

Pathways helped me navigate one of the most difficult life challenges I have ever experienced. This summer I made the choice to reach out for help. It was at a time when I was so desperate, scared and vulnerable. From the very first interaction, the staff at Pathways showed compassion and consideration for my situation. I never once felt judged, ashamed or unsupported. I met Michelle (the owner) the same day I called in asking for her help. Michelle took the time to meet with me and my husband despite her plans to get on a plane that afternoon. Michelle made me and my family a priority. I recently graduated from the Intensive Outpatient Program at Pathways and I will be celebrating my 5 months of sobriety tomorrow 10/2/19. Its difficult to find the words to describe my appreciation. Pathways helped me find my self worth and self love so that I no longer choose alcohol to numb out. My actions now align with my goals and values. I am certainly proud of myself today. Pathways is part of my success story. I absolutely would have reached out sooner had I known just how much it was going to help me and my family. It’s hard work, and it’s the best investment I’ve ever made in my own well-being. Thank you Pathways for everything you have done, you truly are amazing.

This place is an answer to prayers. The staff Are experienced, skilled and engaged. They say that an addict needs to want to make the changes for him or herself and make the changes for the right reasons Which is absolutely true. That is what is so special about this recovery center. They go the extra mile and help the patients get to the right point to where they want to make those changes and then they move on to learn the skills they need for lasting recovery. Another important thing that sets this center apart from the others Is there follow up care and treatment. They make special effort to stay in touch with their patients and offer literally hundreds of ways that the person can Stay in touch with a huge community of recovery professionals. They are very good about making Room for you or your loved one so that They can start of addressing your specific needs quickly as possible.

Pathways has been a life saver for me. I was at my lowest low when I started there. And now I am feeling better than I have in years. Great staff and clients. Gave them 4 instead of 5 stars because at the time I was there, there was a lot of staff turnover and a period of drama among some clients that probably could have been handled better. But their program is amazing. I highly recommend pathways if you are struggling emotionally or dealing with addiction.

I did a lot of research for months on finding the right program for me. I wanted to treat and heal all aspects of me and learn new life skills, and be able to find peace and happiness through strengthening processing and adapting to life stressors and panic attacks. After just my first month at Pathways I already feel so much stronger, better, safer and am part of a program and group with support beyond my expectations. I am thankful for every minute I have been involved in this program and look forward to continue on my new path of healing and healthy mental, emotional and physical choices. The entire staff at Pathways is easy to work with and compassionate. You feel a genuine sense of caring and loving and part of a welcoming team and family. Thank you so much Michelle and everyone at Pathways, including not only the staff, but the wonderful group of people going through the program by my side every step of the way.

Finally, a program that really works with people who truly care and have real life experiences to share. This program has changed my life, mindset and wellbeing. This is a program of caring, love and understanding. They focus on the core issues as a pathway to wellbeing and they will never give up on you. Every member of the staff will treat you like family and you will find deep lasting connection with them and other members. I have tried and failed in the past. Not this time. With the support of those involved in this program, anything is possible!

Pathways Real Life Recovery has been one of the most outstanding blessing I’ve received in my life. It’s help me go from homeless on drugs and dressed to sheltered loved and sober. The employees treat you with patience kindness and love. I’ve never felt more at home with any other treatment program. Thank you Pathways Real Life Recovery, you’ve really changed the direction of my life in a positive manner.
