Do Children Suffer from Depression?

Author GreatDad Writers
Submitted 08-01-2007

The answer is yes. About 5 percent of kids and teenagers battle with depression. Many grown ups ignore the fact that children too can be victims of severe clinical depression.

Till about 1980, depression was not even considered as a threat to kids. But recent studies have shown that this is a reality, and needs to be addressed by parents. Sometimes parents ignore the symptoms, or signs that children with depression give out. But if you are alert enough, you can easily get help.
