Teen Depression

Parenting Teens with Depression podcast

Signs to watch for, tips to use at home, and knowing when it’s time to seek help

Parents of teenagers know that during these developmental years, emotions can change without warning and seemingly without reason. But today’s statistics reveal alarming trends in our teens’ mental health.

Teen depression rates on the rise

Between 2007 and 2017, the number of teenagers who experienced depression increased 59%. In addition, suicide is now the second leading cause of death in young people between the ages of 10 and 24—more than homicide, more than overdoses, more than cancer.

That’s why it’s more important than ever to recognize when a teenager’s changing moods are just part of puberty, or when it’s a sign of something deeper.

How to help teens with depression

In the 5-part Parenting Teens with Depression podcast, mental health experts from Rogers Behavioral Health provide critical insight on risk factors associated with teens and depression, symptoms to watch for, tips to use at home, when it’s time to seek help, and effective therapies used in treatment.
