Once you have the slightest doubt that your child might be suffering from depression .start observing their behaviour and daily activities, the type of game they indulge .first know your child’s basic behavioural pattern, then it will be easy for you to notice any unnatural variations. You need to accept the fact that this is an illness like others and there is no specific reason for why the child is getting depressed.it can be an accumulation of all information.

2. Take them for proper a health check-up

If the child is complaining of any physical pain or crying most of the time and getting irritated. Take them to the physician for a check-up, as they might be suffering from any health issue.

3. Talk to your child and give them your undivided attention

The children who are deprived of their parents’ love often become victims of depression. So start paying your undivided attention and love. Ask them about their life, their friends, what they are learning in school .who are their favourite teachers and why? If you are doing something ask their opinion. Even if they are young they must have an opinion and choice. Give them chance to choose, this will encourage them to open up and build trust to make them feel safe.

4. Look into Their life and change in the environment

Look into their life what kind of games they are playing. If they are talking about violence, fighting’s then asked them what the reasons behind their discussion are.

Here are the 11 ways if you are suffering from the same depression and being on a journey to heal yourself after your divorce.

1. Ask for help from your friends and family

2. Make new friends

3. Discover your true self

Discover your dimensions to see your life. Stop criticizing yourself. Find the special qualities you are born with. Stop comparing your life with someone else. Every individual has an anomaly behind the scene. Compliment yourself for your accomplishment and decisions, reward yourself with positive possibilities by reframing your mindset from being sad to being happy.

4. Live your dream life 

This is the best chance to explore your inner self and do all the dreams you ever had. Focus on your inner strength. Live the life of your choice, leaving the range band of life by counting the days. Make a wish list and rewrite your life. Make a necessary plan to accomplish that dream. Like learning a new language, traveling the world, getting your dream promotion, pursue a higher study, write a book or learn a new skill. Do whatever you like without thinking of being judged by the world. So set a goal and nail it.

5. Analyze past mistakes & Stay away from the blame game

Take control of your life being financially independent. Make your asset-liability statement. Plan to balance your income and debt and lifestyle requirements with future savings.

Focus on your inner strength and take the support of your interests and hobbies. Listen to some good motivational speakers. Reconnect with your tribes, live life a thousandfold. You can be everything in a single lifetime.

Make them feel you’re ready and willing to provide necessary unconditional support, resisting your urge to criticize and judge.
 
communicate with a depressed teen
Be gentle and persistent in your approach, as they may shut you out at first. Teens find difficult expressing about their feeling. Listen to them what they are talking about, acknowledge their feelings.
Trust your instinct, if your teen saying nothing is wrong, but has no explanation for any of his behavior. If your teen won’t open up to you, entrust a third party who is close to them. Most important thing is to get them to express themselves.
 
Here are the five ways how you can help a teen to overcome depression
 
1: Encourage them to have a social connection
Depressed teens incline to withdraw from their friends and the activities they used to enjoy and isolation only makes the condition worse, so help them reconnect by prioritizing FaceTime and talking with them. To Combat social isolation, encourage them to go out with friends, do family outings and activities, invite their friends to take part.
Involve them in activities like sports, after-school clubs, art, dance, or music class that take advantage of their interests and talents. Inspire them to volunteer for some good cause, which will boost their self-esteem
 2: prioritize physical health
Most teens have unhealthy habits like staying up late, eating junk food, and spending lots of hours on their phones, you can engage them in different activities by thing outside of the box like inspiring them to garden, walking with the dog, going for a hike, fishing, riding bikes or a cycling trip as long as they are active it’s beneficial for their mental and physical health. Limit their screen time, and engage them more face time, limit their screen time, and engage them more face time with friends and family. Focus on eating nutritious, Fresh produce, balanced meals. Eating a lot of sugary, starchy foods will only harm their mood and energy. Encourage plenty of sleep. Teens need 9-10 hours per night of sleep to function.
3:Identify when to seek professional help
Support and a healthy lifestyle can make a difference for depressed teens, but when it’s not enough. Seek professional help from a mental health expert.
 
Involve your child in treatment
While choosing a specialist or pursuing treatment options, always get their input. This will motivate them and they will be more involved in the treatment. Don’t make unilateral decisions. Explore your options if they are not convinced by the specialist.
 
Discuss the depression treatment options for your teen with the specialist. Whether to carry a talk therapy or medication as per the severity of the case.
 
Don’t choose antidepressant medication over other treatments.Unless your child is showing suicidal signs. In all cases, antidepressants are most effective only as part of a broader treatment plan. Teens on antidepressants need to be observed, they have risks and side effects as these are designed and tested on adults. Which can result. Bipolar disorder in Teens.
4: Extend Support through depression treatment
Teenager needs to feel that they’re valued, accepted, and cared for. Be understanding and patience while living with a depressed teenager than it’s difficult and tiring. Most of the time, you will experience some negative emotions like exhaustion, rejection, despair, aggravation. A child is not being difficult on purpose but suffering. You need to make sure your teen is following prescribed treatment instructions and medication. Track the changes in them, don’t be disheartened, and blame yourself for not doing enough.
 5: Take care of yourself and the family
It’s important to take care of your physical and mental health along with other family members, even though your depressed teen needs extra care. Seek the help of other family members and have your support system, which can help you share your overwhelming feelings. Otherwise, this may drag you to depression, see a therapist of your own.
 
Be open with the family and other Kids know when something is wrong. Don’t ignore them or put them in dark to let jump their imagination. Discuss what is going on and invite your children to ask questions and share their feelings, too. Every child needs special individual attention. Otherwise, depression in one child can cause stress or anxiety in other family members. Don’t blame anybody as this only can worsen the situation.
 
Occasional mood swing in teens is normal, but in depression, it can supersede melancholy mood and destroy the teen’s personality. It can go beyond moodiness, followed by serious health problems for a lifetime. Love, guidance, and support can help teens overcome depression and get their lives back on track
 
If you’re a teen and feeling depressed…
 
Seek help, don’t let your mood control you. Depression is not permanent, and it also has a solution.
