Red flags that parents should look for if they think their child is depressed are:
· Lack of interest in previously-enjoyable activities.
· Persistent sad feelings
· Feelings of hopelessness or guilt
· Changes in eating habits and or sleeping patterns
· Difficulty concentrating
If you think that your child is depressed,
· Talk to them openly
· Tell them that you are worried about them
· Communication with your child is key
· You know you child best. If your gut is telling you that there is something going on, there probably is.
