There is a notion that only adults go through depression. A teenager or an adolescent cannot possibly understand what depression means, let alone go through it. But studies suggest that there’s an alarming rise in the population of teenage students under depression, which is now close to 11% of the total teenage population. Depression among students can be irrespective of their gender, though female students are likely to suffer more from depression compared to their male counterparts.
Depression at any age or stage of life isn’t healthy and it eats away into the person’s mental and physical well-being. With the competition, peer pressure, and the pressure to perform and prove, more and more teenagers are going through depression. It hampers their ability to concentrate and learn and it even comes in the way of their daily lives and their relationships with their friends and family.
