Toddlers, adolescents and teens can suffer from depression and anxiety and in the extreme cases become suicidal. Unlike adults, however, children usually are not able to express what they are feeling and do not ask for help. It is important for parents and teachers to understand the basic signs about childhood depression so they can help the child or teen. There are many sources and support groups to help children, and teens that may be depressed or contemplating suicide. Parents and teachers should always take childhood depression and suicide attempts or threats very seriously and do whatever it takes to help that child. If you have reason to suspect your child might be depressed or suicidal, you need to act quickly and get professional assistance immediately.

Children can experience depression at any age even as a toddler or an infant.  Many toddlers attending preschool experience separation anxiety and will cry excessively because the do not want to be separated from their parents. Older children that are depressed might not play as often with friends or spend most of the time alone without interests. They may constantly say they wish they were dead or talk about suicide

As children become teens depression manifests in different ways. Teenage depression is a pretty common occurrence and it can affect anyone.  Being a teenager is hard for anyone with pressures from friends, school and parents. Some teens feel they have no other way out and turn to suicide. For others, suicide attempts are a way to get attention. When a teen commits suicide, everyone is affected. Teen suicide prevention includes identifying what causes the depression and suicidal tendencies and taking action to prevent it.
