People can experience the symptoms of depression due to various triggers. However, it does not mean that the individual will be diagnosed with major depression. When someone experiences some of the symptoms, it is necessary to determine what the trigger is so that it can be attended to. If the individual is not guided to manage the symptoms themselves or with help, it can potentially lead to depression.

Although there are many reasons why teenagers can experience depression symptoms, only self-harm, bullying, and social media are covered here.

It is challenging for anyone to deal with the depression symptoms, even for people who have not been diagnosed with major depression. When the individual does not get help to manage the symptoms themselves, suicide may become a reality.

Remember, someone can only be diagnosed with major depression by a professional therapist or medical doctor. Don't make any assumptions or make a diagnosis based on the results of online questionnaires.
