Depression in children and adolescents: A narrative review

Pratibha Gehlawat, Virender Kumar Gehlawat

Abstract :

Depression is a major health problem that affects people of all ages. Researchers have estimated that 2-6% of children and adolescents in the community suffer from depression. Depression in children and adolescents is a chronic and relapsing condition, which does not remits spontaneously. A major proportion of depression in children and adolescents remains underdiagnosed and undertreated. Children with depression cannot just snap out of it on their own. If left untreated, depression in children can lead to school failure, conduct disorder and delinquency, anorexia and bulimia, school phobia, panic attacks, substance abuse, or even suicide. Hence, there is a need to identify and treat the same at the earliest to reduce its long-term negative consequences.
