Causes of Adolescent Depression

A recent posting on describes 10 Common Causes for Teenage Depression.  I thought it was a useful post and worth passing along.   I think it is also certainly worth noting that most frequently there isn’t a single cause but several that can conspire to work together.  A child with a genetic predisposition for depression (#6), might be raised in an environment where he or she does not get a lot of parental attention (#8, perhaps due to the parent’s own depression) which can make this adolescent very vulnerable to common stressors like a romantic breakup (#3).
