How To Find Out If Your Child Has A Mental Disorder And How To Deal With It

Identifying mental illness in children can be tricky for parents and health care providers. As a result, many children who could benefit from treatment don’t get the help they need in the very initial stages. Children are different from adults. They experience an array of physical, mental, and emotional changes as they progress through their natural growth and development phases. The kids, during their growing years, are also in the process of learning how to cope with, adapt, and relate to others and the world around them.

It seems there is a relationship between adolescence and the possibility of developing a mental illness.

However, this article will take a deeper look and explore why teens can be at risk for developing a mental illness, specifically depression. The Many Changes Teens Go Through One primary reason why teens become vulnerable to depression is because of the physical, emotional, social, and psychological changes they are experiencing. Teens are making their way to adulthood via their physical growth, new interests, desire to explore, and yearning to discover who they are. However, these changes also come with growing pains, rejection by peers, feeling inadequate, and moody. For instance, here are some additional reasons teens may be at risk for emotional instability and depression during adolescence: Teens may have increased tendency for risk-taking. Teens may have a strong desire to “leave the nest” and to explore the world around them. They might want to spend less time with the family and more time with friends.
