Depression can manifest differently in children and teenagers, impacting their emotional well-being and daily functioning in distinctive ways. Children experiencing depression may exhibit symptoms such as persistent irritability, a decline in academic performance, and physical complaints such as stomach aches or headaches. Teenagers, on the other hand, might display profound sadness, changes in sleeping or eating patterns, and withdrawal from social activities. At WCWCW, we recognize the unique challenges associated with depression in children and teenagers and offer comprehensive support and effective treatment options tailored to address each group’s specific needs.
