Pediatric Depression

Depression in children may differ from depression in adults, so it’s important to know the symptoms. You may notice sadness, withdrawing from family and friends, extreme sensitivity to failure, poor concentration, changes in ability to sleep, and increased irritability. Many kids who are depressed will also experience a change in how much they participate in social or school activities. They may also show a decline in their academic performance.
