Resolution Ranch Academy helps troubled boys struggling with Depression, which is more than simply unhappiness.  It is an omnipresent sense of helplessness, worthlessness and bleakness that engulfs him, leaving him in anguish without reprieve.  Symptoms can include loss of interest in once-loved sports and hobbies, appetite, sleep or weight changes, irritability, self-hatred, decreased energy and ability to concentrate.  Many people do not accurately understand Depression, and some who suffer are disinclined to seek out treatment, fearful of the stigma associated with it.

behavior modification schools TexasTreatment for Depression normally requires at least some degree of professional assistance.  Therapy might well be combined with medication to help your teen with more balance in approaching his challenges, to help uncover origins of the depression as well as provide effective coping strategies for dealing with the desolation.  He may find respite by making healthy changes in his workout habits and nutritional routines, or by learning stress management.  Most people respond well to treatments, and have partial or total recovery from symptoms.

As parents, it may be difficult to recognize the symptoms, because the more normal response to it in teens is petulance rather than sadness.  Your child may demonstrate hostility and loss of temper.  Teen Depression can lead to self-medication with alcohol or drugs, and problems with schoolwork.  Depression is a major cause of teen suicide, emphasizing the significance of seeking treatment early for problems rather than hoping his problems will simply evaporate by themselves.
