Child and Adolescent Mood Disorders

Mood disorders in children and adolescents include depression, bipolar disorder, and dysthymia. Symptoms can differ from those in adults, with younger individuals often exhibiting irritability, academic decline, and social withdrawal. Early intervention is crucial for effective treatment and improved outcomes. Treatment often involves a combination of psychotherapy and medication. Cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) and family therapy are particularly effective. Medications, such as antidepressants and mood stabilizers, may also be prescribed. Support from family and schools are vital in the treatment process. Educating parents and teachers about the signs and symptoms of mood disorders can facilitate early detection and intervention. Lifestyle changes, such as regular exercise, a healthy diet, and adequate sleep, can also improve symptoms. Addressing any co-occurring conditions, such as anxiety or ADHD, is important for comprehensive treatment. On-going research aims to understand the underlying causes of mood disorders in children and adolescents and develop new treatments.
