A quiet, shy, introspective child may never face depression at all. This child may grow into a perfectly happy, healthy adult who also happens to be quiet and introspective. A bubbly, excitable child could face a lifelong struggle with depression. They’ll still be their naturally optimistic self on the outside, but they’ll also be struggling with a mental disorder that needs to be addressed. Remember, depression is just like the common cold: anyone can get it, and it doesn’t reflect on the kind of person they are.
Here’s what we’ll discuss the course list topics:
This training course required basic English language.
- Understanding teenage depression what depression is.
- The types of depression and the different ways that each can manifest
- The statistics surrounding teenage depression, as well as teenage suicide

Have you ever seen any of your friends or schoolmates change from one school year to the next? Maybe there used to be a nice, smart girl in the front row of every class who loved horses and books; but by the next year, she was sleeping through class in the back, sitting alone during lunch, and covering her old horse folders with Sharpie scribbles.
Or maybe you’ve known friends who have started hurting themselves and covering the scars with long sleeves in the summer. Maybe you’ve heard a classmate forcing themselves to throw up after lunch, or you’ve noticed that a previously quiet boy is constantly getting into fights. Maybe some or all of these scenarios describes you.
In any of these cases, you or your classmates could be suffering from depression. Depression may sound like something that only stressed-out adults get, but it is nothing more than a sickness that needs medical attention. Like catching a cold or breaking a bone, it can happen to anyone.
You’ll also find out about the different types of depression, so you’ll know what to expect when you see a doctor. Statistics on teen depression can help you talk to your parents or your doctor.
