Depression can lead to social isolation and affects relationships with family and friends. In children, depression is also associated with an increased risk of suicide. It is estimated that more than 90% of children and teens have depression. Symptoms may appear early in childhood, but usually appear in adolescence or adulthood. Although bipolar disorder more commonly develops in older teenagers and young adults, it can appear in children as young as 6.
Depression in young people occurs often accompanied with anxiety, disruptive behavior, with substance abuse or diabetes.
Once a young man had an episode of depression, he/she have an increased risk for another episode in the next five years. Children who experience depressive episodes were five times more likely to have depression as an adult.
