Depression in Adolescents

Depression is a mood disorder that affects an adolescent's body, mood and thoughts. It can affect and disrupt eating, sleeping or thinking patterns, and is not the same as being unhappy or in a "blue" mood, nor is it a sign of personal weakness or a condition that can be willed or wished away.
