Certain types blood testing experiments have detected certain chemicals that can be signs of depression in teens. (Lowry)
Targeted rejection in teens can lead to suppressed immune system, which can lead to diabetes, mental illness, heart disease, and some forms of cancer. (Lowry)
Although new forms of treatment are being tested, parents of depressed teens should look for signs of depression in case they need to see a doctor. (Lowry)

Depression has two different meanings in the medical world. One meaning is feeling gloomy, and low. Another meaning is dependent on the specific ilness. For example, seasonal affective disorder. (Mulholland)
There are different types of depression that have been diagnosed. Some of them more severe than others. (Simon)
People have looked at depression differently over the years. Recently, there's been a debate on whether or not depression is an illness or whether it is because we have evolved to a point where our body is trying to tell us to change or escape our present situations.
Evolutionary psychology is how the past environment have affected the way our brains function. Therefore, it has affected our brains in a negative way.
When we get upset, there's a reason why. It usually means that our "coping systems need a time out." It was probably easier to take a "time out" back then, but in our day and age, that gets harder and harder. We have busy schedules and a time out just seems like it's out of the question.
Doctors have advised us to recognize the false belief that we hold about ourselves as to help us realize whether or not we do have depression, or if we're just sad and down. (Pelusi)
Study shows that psychological problems among teenagers have been increasing since the 1930s and it might be because of the obsessive need for materialistic things.
Surveys showed that more and more teens are saying that they have some sort of mental illness.
An increase in the number of students saying that they feel isolated and misunderstood have risen since the 1930s and 1940s.
The author stated that as this generation focuses more on themselves, it is also hurting them mentally "on a societal level." (Hutchison)
