Help! My Daughter is Depressed

Help! My Daughter is Depressed 960 637 se_admin

The teenage years can be extremely tough. You remember the growing pains associated with trying to handle hormones, make good grades, maintain a social life, and enjoy your hobbies or find new ones. It can all be extremely overwhelming. Depression among teens is not a new phenomenon. It is more common now than ever. If your daughter is struggling with depression, you must first realize it. Then educate yourself. Then you can provide her with the help she needs.

Do any of the following apply to your teenage daughter?

  • Has she been sad or irritable most of the day, most days in a week for at least two weeks?
  • Has she lost interest in things that she used to really enjoy?
  • Have her eating or sleeping habits changed?
  • Does she have very little energy, very little motivation to do much of anything?
  • Is she feeling worthless, hopeless about her future, or guilty about things that aren’t her fault?
  • Have her grades dropped, or is she finding it difficult to concentrate?
  • Has she had thoughts of suicide? If so it’s crucial you have her evaluated by a mental health professional immediately.

How to Help Her

This is a list of common signs that parents identify in their depressed children. If you find that your child is struggling with depression here are four ways you can help support them:

  1. Build your relationship with them. Make it clear that you are giving a full effort to understand the pain they are feeling. Don’t dismiss their feelings or tell them they are wrong. Everyone is entitled to their own emotions. Create a foundation in which they know they can trust you and talk to you about what they are experiencing. Helping them starts with a healthy line of communication and trust.
  2. Point out the positives. When you notice your teen making full effort to interact with others, get homework done, or practice self-care, tell her you notice. Let your child know you’re proud of them. This can reinforce their value and make them feel accomplished. Keep a conscious awareness of if you are highlighting or helping your teen with their problems.
  3. Provide resources and proper care. If your child needs professional intervention. Help them get it. Teens won’t willingly hop in the car and engage with a stranger about how their feeling. It doesn’t work like that. Do your research and find the therapy program that you feel can address your teen’s needs. Talk with them about how beneficial this will be and make the transition as smooth as possible.
  4. Practice self-care. Parenting a child struggling with depression can be emotionally and physically taxing. In order to help your child get healthy, you should be healthy. Get rest, relax, and allow time for doing things you enjoy. This helps you recover and recharge so that you can provide the high-level of support your child needs.

Breathe In, Breathe Out: How Mindfulness Helps Teens who Struggle with Depression and Anxiety

Breathe In, Breathe Out: How Mindfulness Helps Teens who Struggle with Depression and Anxiety 640 426 se_admin

Teen suicide. Substance abuse. Bullying and fights. Although seemingly unrelated, these all too frequent epidemics are plaguing today’s schools; and, frequently, they seem to spring from a single common source.

Kids are finding it tough to cope these days; the challenging, sometimes stifling demands of peer pressure and academic performance placing undue stress on their sensitive psyche.

In order to combat these issues—and, for that matter, the feelings of anger, frustration, and sometimes out and out hopelessness that accompany them—many school districts are offering mindfulness sessions in school.

Mindfulness involves the teaching of techniques like breathing and meditation to help people calm themselves and control their emotions.

Here is how you and your teen’s teacher can put mindfulness to work for them:

  1. Guide the teen in the commission of deliberate deep breathing exercises. The phrase “Stop and take a good deep breath,” never has been more applicable. The simple act of stopping, falling silent, and taking a good, deep breath can do much to center and calm a frenetic teen; especially if they happen to be in the throes of an anxiety attack, when the simple process of breathing becomes strained and difficult.
  2. Learn more about yoga and meditation. These sacred, time-honored arts have been utilized for centuries to bring peace, balance and happiness to people of all ages. Through instructional classes, books and videos, you can learn the principles and practices of yoga and meditation; passing this information on to your troubled teen. Teachers can lead meditative sessions in the classroom, and physical education teachers might integrate yoga into daily fitness regimens. Parents can morph a good yoga or meditation session into an enjoyable family activity.
  3. Encourage self-reflection. Train your teen to reflect on and contemplate their problems and stressors; also to discuss these issues with parents and teachers, so that you can work together to find healthy and workable solutions.
  4. Teach and encourage your teen to express themselves. When teens are empowered to release their tensions and frustrations in constructive and highly creative manners, then they no doubt will feel calmer, more centered, and more in control of their emotions. If they can sing a song instead of scream, draw a picture instead of take a drug, write instead of cut, etc., then they will develop a positive and intensely constructive outlet for their emotions.

Form a mindfulness team with your teen. When you meditate, breathe or draw/write/sing with the troubled teen, then you will bring the divine circle of mindfulness to its completion—to the benefit of both of you

teen mood disorders

Sleep Deprived Youth at a Higher Risk for Teen Mood Disorders

Sleep Deprived Youth at a Higher Risk for Teen Mood Disorders 1920 1275 se_admin

Recently, it’s become more clear how much damage not getting enough sleep can cause. Higher risks of depression, anxiety, heart disease, and more have been linked to sleep deprivation. This common teenage issue can wreak havoc on a child’s academic performance, physical health, mental health, and more. While we’re still understanding what causes it, yet another study has shown a strong link between shuteye and teen mood disorders.

Sleep deprived teens common

This is simply a fact–and it’s not hard to believe, either (if you’re the parent of a teen). According to the National Sleep Foundation, about 15 percent of teenagers report getting the minimum amount of sleep. Teens need to get around 8 to 10 hours of sleep a night. This means that more than 4 in 5 teens are walking around, going to school, and driving cars sleep deprived.

It’s not unusual for teens to stay up late and wake up early for school–especially when devices are allowed in bedrooms at night. It’s becoming clear that there are serious consequences of this behavior, though. A lot more than just being moody and falling asleep in class.

Study shows lack of sleep can lead to teen mood disorders

A new study by the University of Pittsburgh looked into the connection between mental health and sleep deprivation. Researchers found that even lack of sleep for a short period of time can increase their risk for teen mood disorders in the long term.

Results revealed that the part of the brain involved in goal-based actions and learning from rewards, the putamen, was less responsive in sleep deprived participants. In other words, they received less reaction from getting rewards. Symptoms of depression were also higher with sleep deprivation.

This study just confirms findings from many, many other studies showing the same results; a strong link between less activity in the brain’s reward system and mood disorders exists.

Overall, it’s clear that sleep is essential to mental health. If you believe your daughter may be struggling with a mental health issue, don’t wait. It’s critical to reach out to a professional for early treatment.

What to Look for in a School for Depressed Teen Daughter

What to Look for in a School for Depressed Teen Daughter se_admin

Your daughter doesn’t seem like herself anymore. She doesn’t enjoy activities she used to, she doesn’t like hanging out with her friends, she’s not doing well in school, she’s isolating herself–she’s depressed. When your family has tried out traditional therapy and had no response, it may be time to look into a school for your depressed teen daughter.

Maybe to your surprise, there are quite a few options in the realm of searching for a school for your depressed teen daughter. It’s important to know what factors can separate the wheat from the chaff in this new specialized world into which your family is stepping.

Characteristics of an excellent school for depressed teen daughter

When looking for a school for your depressed teen daughter, it’s essential to consider the therapies, setting, staff, and principles of the program. Some of the qualities of a superior residential school for struggling girls include:

  • Nurturing Environment. For your daughter to heal, she needs to be in an environment that actively works to nurture her and help her grow. This is what a fully therapeutic setting accomplishes. The immersion into therapy provides a level of care girls grappling with mental health issues need to develop the personal growth and confidence essential to healing.
  • Trained, Passionate Staff. You could have the best designed programming in all the land, but without caring, passionate people to execute it, it’s nothing. Staff play a critical role in supporting and supervising your daughter all throughout her healing process. They must be appropriately trained and passionate about helping adolescents work through their issues.
  • Supportive Setting. For success, support is crucial. Not just from the staff, but from the entire program, including the girl’s family. A system of support has to be woven into the fabric of the program to create the right amount of safety and warmth.
  • Comprehensive Therapy. No child is alike–they all have separate challenges and thus require different types of treatment. To do this, there must be a comprehensive therapeutic model put into place. This way, each individual can find which therapies work best for them and help them reach their specific needs.
  • Family Integration. In order for your daughter to truly heal, the whole family has to be brought into the process. Excluding the family won’t fix the issues that developed in the home. Without the support system of the family, reaching a full success is out of the question, this is why it’s so important for it to be included.

If you believe your daughter is having issues with mental health, it is critical to seek out a professional. Hoping the problem will remedy itself with time often does not turn out well–not just for your daughter, but for the whole family.

Depression in Adolescence Affects Girls More Than Boys

Depression in Adolescence Affects Girls More Than Boys 150 150 se_admin

We already knew that depression in adolescence isn’t rare, but now it’s becoming clearer and clearer that girls are more often affected by it than boys. Research is piling up showing the disparity between the genders when it comes to depression in adolescence–but professionals are still searching for the reason why this is happening.

Reasons why depression in adolescence may affect girls more

A large study recently came out showing the gap between genders in reference to depression in adolescence. From 2005 to 2014–less than 10 years, mind you–depression in young people spiked up. This was about 500,000 more teens experiencing depression with around three-fourths of them being girls.

So, we know the what, but where’s the why?

Some scientists are chalking it up to social media use. It’s been shown that girls are more likely to be using social media platforms as a way of communicating with others–so maybe there could be a connection to explore there.

We already know that the images and expectations depicted by the media can be incredibly harmful on a young girl’s forming mind, social media just makes it easier to pass along those messages. While social media is an inspirational and revolutionary means of connecting with others, it can also be used as way for bullies to target their victims 24/7.

Focusing on appearances is never good for mental health, but that’s what many social media platforms are centered around. Facebook, Snapchat, and Instagram are some of the most used social media platforms–and they all are heavily based on other’s approval of either statuses, posts, or pictures.

The answer to this spike in depression in adolescence (particularly in girls) could be traced back to the media once again. It has in the past and until the media decides to realistically and positively depict women, it may always continue.

What parents can do

As a parent–whether you believe it or not–you have a large amount of influence on the way your daughter thinks. Simply opening a discussion about the unrealistic portrayals of women in the media can be helpful.

Don’t be forceful, just gain her opinion on how she feels about the way the media shows what a “perfect” woman should look and act like. The insight can help you to be more positive around your daughter and be a better role model overall.

If you truly believe your daughter is facing issues such as depression in adolescence, it’s critical to seek out a professional for further guidance.

Research Shows Mindfulness Meditation Helps Anxiety and Depression

Research Shows Mindfulness Meditation Helps Anxiety and Depression 150 150 se_admin

We live in an incredibly fast-paced society. At times, it can feel like 24 hours in a day isn’t enough to accomplish everything on one’s plate. While keeping busy and accomplishing tasks is an important part of life, so is taking moments to rest. For teenagers, it can be easy to become overwhelmed with the many responsibilities of getting a high GPA, playing sports, participating in clubs, and staying involved with the community. These responsibilities are known to cause even severe anxiety in some teens. That’s where mindfulness meditation may be of use.

More than taking a moment to breathe

When the mindfulness meditation craze began, many figured it was just a trend and had no scientific backing to it. Mindfulness meditation is actually a centuries old technique that’s been used all over the world for focusing, healing, and coping purposes. Now we know through copious research that it does indeed have health benefits.

Now, this type of meditation isn’t just sitting in one place and breathing–it’s much more than that. It’s all about taking time to check in with yourself. Through this meditation, a person becomes more in touch with how they’re feeling, why they’re feeling that way, and how their surroundings are affecting them. This is something that frequently doesn’t happen in today’s world because of our obsession with constantly being busy.

Research shows mindfulness meditation improves mental health

Recently, a study by Georgetown University Medical Center showed strong evidence of the benefits mindfulness meditation has to offer. While a lot of research has begun in the effects of mindfulness training, this study seems to be one of the most exhaustive and compelling so far.

Researchers found a sharp decline of the stress hormone in participants who experienced a stressful event and then practiced mindfulness meditation. The group that didn’t get treated with mindfulness meditation took a “Stress Management Education course.” In the course, they were taught the importance of sleep, nutrition, and other health areas. The mindfulness meditation had a much larger effect on the level of stress participants experienced.

Elizabeth A. Hoge, MD–lead author of the study–explained why this is good news:

“Mindfulness meditation training is a relatively inexpensive and low-stigma treatment approach, and these findings strengthen the case that it can improve resilience to stress.”

While this type of meditation may not be a “cure all” for anxiety or depression, it’s most definitely a promising way to help individuals suffering from anxiety better handle it.

Therapy Program for Teens: Adele & Celebs Speak About Mental Health

Therapy Program for Teens: Adele & Celebs Speak About Mental Health 150 150 se_admin

As a therapy program for teens, we understand that many more people deal with mental health issues than the public believes. Many studies have found that around 1 in 5 American adults will experience mental health issues within a given year–that’s a large chunk of the population. Those people rarely seek out help, though, and it often goes on ignored. Celebrities aren’t magically immune to the effects of mental illness, either. Many turn to facilities, like a therapy program for teens, for help, but few speak out about it.

Recently, Adele, Kim Kardashian, and Kendall Jenner shared their struggles with different mental health issues. We can’t choose who our daughter’s decide to idolize–a lot of them look up to people like Kim Kardashian whether we like it or not. This is why it’s incredibly important when celebrities decide to share their struggles with mental health issues. As a therapy program for teens, we’re very interested in the public being more educated about mental health–this is the only way the stigma will shrink.

Celebrities speak about their personal experiences with mental health issues

Adele and Postpartum Depression

Adele recently came out and spoke about her struggle with postpartum depression after having her son, Angelo, who is now 4 years old. She emphasized that so many women experience postpartum depression, but don’t seek help for it because they’re afraid of being called “bad mothers.” For this reason, she decided to speak up about her journey through it. After struggling with feelings of inadequacy as a mother, she finally began talking to her friends about it and felt that many of them had gone through the same thing. This is what got her through her postpartum depression.

She admitted that she’s always struggled with fits of depression. She pointed to the melancholy themes of her songs, suggesting that it’s a type of outlet for those emotions. Adele told Vanity Fair in the interview:

“The music I’ve always been drawn to is sad. I’ve always been pretty melancholy. Obviously not as much in my real life as the songs are, but I have a very dark side. It started when my granddad died, when I was about 10, and while I never had a suicidal thought, I have been in therapy, lots.”

While Adele got through her struggle with depression without the help of medication, for many women this doesn’t work. As a therapy program for teens, we understand that each individual is unique and that while a medication or tactic may work for one teen, it may not for another.

Kim Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, and Anxiety

Anxiety is one of the most common mental health issues in the country–especially for young people. Recently, Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner opened up about both of their separate struggles with anxiety. As you may have heard, Kardashian was robbed in her own household not too long ago, which she believes has worsened her anxiety. She describes having panic attacks and worrying about every tiny thing. For example, she described her drive to see one of her friends:

“I’ve been having anxiety lately [about] every last thing. Like even driving here, I tried to drive not all the way on the freeway because what happens if a car flips over and hits me? I think of every freak accident.”

While Kardashian struggles with certain symptoms of anxiety, her sister–Kendall Jenner–struggles with different ones. Jenner has experienced sleep paralysis–which has been linked to anxiety–and frequently has panic attacks on planes. She described it:

“I am kind of freaking out. It is so weird as I get like super light headed when I am on planes and I feel like I am going to faint. I don’t know what to do as I am freaking out about even flying home.”

It can be frustrating to feel so out of control and both these women understand that feeling. To work through their anxiety, Kardashian has undergone sessions with an anxiety therapist and Jenner has begun using meditation as a way to control and cope with her anxiety.

As a therapy program for teens, we see these types of symptoms all the time in girls struggling with anxiety. It’s not a rare occurrence, which is why it’s so important that Kardashian and Jenner decided to speak up about their experiences.

Celebrities Put Spotlight on Mental Treatment for Teen Girls & Youth

Celebrities Put Spotlight on Mental Treatment for Teen Girls & Youth 150 150 se_admin

Mental health treatment for teen girls and youth is still largely unavailable–in more ways than one. While the treatment may technically be there, many young people are afraid to reach out for it in fear of getting made fun of or labeled as a “freak.” This is due to the deeply ingrained stigma attached to mental health issues. There’s good news, though: this stigma isn’t indestructible. Every time a public figure or celebrity stands up and talks about their struggle openly, that stigma gets undermined and a small piece gets chipped away.

Celebrity stories of dealing with mental health issues

Aaron Carter

Recently, Aaron Carter–once a teen girl heart-throb and successful musician–opened up about his struggle with depression, drug use, and dark thoughts on Oprah. Teen Vogue covered the story in detail. It started at age 16 or 17, when his parents told him they were getting a divorce. He explained that it broke his heart to have to act happy on camera and on stage while he was in turmoil on the inside:

“The depression was brought on because I loved my family being together. I did not want to see them divorced. I couldn’t dwell on it. I couldn’t think about it too much.”

To push the difficult emotions away, he turned to unsavory methods of coping–like drugs and partying. A few years later, he started to lose money and his sister passed away–this was his wake up call. He realized he couldn’t continue on the path he was heading down, so he checked into rehab. There, he learned how to cope with struggles more effectively and in a healthy way–stories like Carter’s inspire individuals to seek out treatment for teen girls and youth when it’s needed.

Scott Mescudi, AKA Kid Cudi

Back towards the beginning of October, famous rapper Kid Cudi checked into rehab for depression and suicidal thoughts. He posted about it on Facebook, explaining his struggle and why he’s decided to finally turn to treatment.

Part of the post read:

“Its been difficult for me to find the words to what Im about to share with you because I feel ashamed. Ashamed to be a leader and hero to so many while admitting I’ve been living a lie. It took me a while to get to this place of commitment, but it is something I have to do for myself, my family, my best friend/daughter and all of you, my fans…My anxiety and depression have ruled my life for as long as I can remember and I never leave the house because of it…Its time I fix me.”

It takes an immense amount of strength not just to seek out treatment, but to explain to the world why you’re doing it. Cudi’s strength will be passed onto others struggling with mental health issues–hopefully inspiring them to seek out treatment for teen girls and youth.

The Need for a Teenage Depression Test

The Need for a Teenage Depression Test 150 150 se_admin

A recent article by Richmond discusses a girl’s story of battling depression and the need for a teenage depression test. For Cameron Gallagher, who lived with depression, the pain of her struggle was almost unbearable. It was extremely difficult on her family and friends watching her battling depression and not knowing what to do. Cameron died suddenly at age 16 from an undiscovered heart condition after running a half-marathon, her difficulties provided the inspiration to help other teens seek help and get a teenage depression test.

A Quest Towards Change

Cameron’s family decided to turn this quest into a 5K race, a foundation, and a program to build awareness and support for individuals needing a teenage depression test and those battling other mental health issues. Research by the 2015 National Youth Risk Behavior Survey has shown, that nearly 30 percent of high school students said they had felt sad or hopeless almost every day for two or more weeks within the past year. The students also stated that during these times they had difficulties staying active in certain usual activities they participated in. The study found that percentages were similar at each grade level.

Among female students, the percentage reporting symptoms of depression was nearly 40 percent overall. Grace Gallagher, Cameron’s mother states:

“Love means doing the hard stuff. Sometimes it’s taking you to a doctor’s appointment that you don’t want to go to. There were some nights that were really, really hard—a lot of tear and not just from Cameron.”

The Importance of Seeking Help

Cameron’s story is an impactful message to all families about the importance of seeking a teenage depression test and therapy. At such a young age, it can seem impossible to understand what you’re going through. With the stigma on mental health, it is essential that teens feel supported and capable of speaking up about their mental health struggles.

Don’t wait, let Cameron’s story be the inspiration to seek the help you need. If you or your child are in need of a teenage depression test, there are programs available that can help.

Kanye West on Teen Depression

Kanye West on Teen Depression 150 150 se_admin

What is Teen Depression?

Teen depression is typically diagnosed if youth experience depressive symptoms for more than 2 weeks. Common symptoms of teen depression include mood swings, irritability, changes in eating habits, frequent sadness and crying, low self-esteem, and thoughts of death or suicide.

For youth experiencing teen depression, most guidelines recommend cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and other psychological therapies as treatment options. According to the recent study, an increasing number of youth with teen depression are being prescribed antidepressants.

Kanye West Opens Up on His Battle with Depression

Kanye West sat down with BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac for an exclusive chat, discussing his botched Glastonbury performance and his state of mild depression. West states:

“I started off the show and I completely messed up the music. And me, as you can imagine by this phone call, I’m a bit of a perfectionist. So it really put me into a slightly depressed state and it put me back in the position of when I was in high school and I got fired from my job, or when I played my music for R. Kelly and he told me he was going to sign me and then three months later I didn’t have any money I couldn’t afford a haircut, I couldn’t take my girlfriend to the movies and I’m still in my momma’s bedroom, working on beats and I was that close to being signed by R. Kelly.”

West’s statement highlights how any troubled time can create symptoms of depression. Teen depression is extremely common in our society and it’s important that youth know they have help available to them. If your teen is suffering with teen depression, there are programs that can help.
