How To Determine Someone Depressed?
Hello, I want to ask, I have been depressed for a long time, but I don’t know about it and since I started thinking about death and strange thoughts, I started to know that I was depressed, but I was 15 years old.
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Depression can happen to anyone, including children and adolescents, so even if you are only 15 years old, depression can occur.
Even so, the diagnosis of depression can only be stated by a doctor so that if you feel a complaint that resembles a depressive symptom, it is strongly recommended to check the complaint further to the doctor, to the general practitioner, or directly to a psychiatrist.
After evaluating your psychological condition, then you can determine whether you really have a psychological disorder or not, and if so, what you are experiencing is depression or other disorders such as anxiety, panic disorder, or bipolar disorder.
Meanwhile, in addition to consulting yourself to the doctor, you can try to change your mindset to be more positive about everything. Also avoid things that cause your complaints to appear or worsen. It is also recommended that you avoid excessive stress.
I hope this helps.
