- Children from 6 to 12 years are suffering from severe depression and children from 3 years of age
There is concern about Corona worldwide. The elderly and children are all going through this difficult period, but there is another big problem on which the attention of the people is less, but it is increasing. There is talk of growing depression in children. It has grown to the extent that children have lived to suicide.
The problem is that like adults, it cannot be easily identified in children and adolescents. Therefore, the family as well as the doctors are also concerned. They do not understand how to help children.
Rachel Bushman, a clinical psychologist at New York’s Child Mind Institute, says that we associate childhood with innocence. In such a situation, depression in children is a matter of concern. Severe depression is visible in children aged 6–12 years. There is also a risk of anxiety disorder and depression in children.
Depression in children up to 3 years old
According to a recent study by Dr. Helen Egger, Head of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at NYU Lango Health, children up to 3 years of age are also seeing depression. Irritability and anger can be symptoms of deep depression. Because of this, they have thoughts of suicide in their mind.
