The Difference Between Clinical Depression And Situational Depression
Most parents are initially quick to blame their teen’s melancholy mood on haywire hormones and may attempt to coax them from their gloominess by telling them to “Just snap out of it” or even enrolling them in boot camps or military schools to toughen them up. However, there can be more to teen depression than meets the eye.
Both clinical and situational depression can have far reaching implications in your teen’s life. Knowing the difference between the two is important if you want to determine the right course of action to take to prevent your child from venturing deeper into depression, suicidal thoughts or self-harm and taking you along for the ride.
