Depression Can Attack Teens


Depression can attack teens, and in fact, it often does. One of the difficult things with depression is it’s often tough to tell if someone is depressed or if they’re just acting like a teenager with the mood swings. What you need to do is have a real close relationship. Try to follow up and make decisions, and look and see how the kids are doing. You cannot take depression lightly. If you have any suspicion, get your teen counseling, because the counseling can make a big difference in preventing long-term problems from occurring.

Getting Treatment for Anxiety

Getting Treatment for Anxiety

Anxiety is very difficult to deal with. We, as physicians, often turn to medications and medications are a good option, but you have to look at the underlying issues surrounding the anxiety. Are there problems that need greater treatment? I believe that counseling is a critical part of any psychiatric issue. One of the problems with anxiety is people are afraid to see the doctor. They don’t want to admit they have a weakness. They’re afraid it will somehow follow them throughout their life. Believe me, when it comes to anxiety, I believe you have to look at all these issues, but don’t be afraid of treatment.
