When your child is depressed they will be having great difficulty in feeling happy. They may be going through a very difficult time, or have experienced something traumatic in their lives that they are struggling to come to terms with.
You’ve been feeling really down for quite some time now, you can’t seem to shake your low mood, feel weepy, not sleeping, have lost your appetite and just can’t seem to get excited about much these days. Are you depressed? Probably.
