Depression is an emotional state in which there are extreme feelings of sadness, dejection, lack of worth and emptiness. Depression is more prevalent in women than men and especially common among adolescents and elderly people. Mostly depression is a reaction to an unhappy event. It is natural to have some depression after a loss such as the death of a relative or after a major disappointment at home or work. Depression can be a transient mood change in response to many stimuli. Both up and down moods mark normal behaviour, with alternating periods of feeling like, 'the world is a great place' and 'life is a bummer.

  In teenagers depression is common because of the normal maturation process, the stress associated with it and conflicts with parents over independence, a break-up with a boyfriend or girlfriend, failure at school or for no apparent reason.

   AIn elderly people often it starts following a chronic illness or financial crisis or loss. Some psychiatric illness, thyroid disorder, alcoholism and drugs could produce depression. Children also tend to be depressed following failures in their expectations.

A depressed teenager will have a change in appetite and sleep patterns, loss of interest or enjoyment in usual activities, prolonged sadness, failing relations with family, withdrawal from friends, feelings of worthlessness, lack of energy and poor school performance, negative behaviour and abuse of drug or alcohol. These are all signs that should alert you to a problem that may need professional counseling! Teenagers may also mask depression with a put-on front of happiness but acting-out and risk-taking behaviour indicate the underlying problem.

Suicide attempt may follow either a short or prolonged period of depression, most common in adolescents.

How to overcome?
