The depression and substances abuse for teenagers currently become issues that lead to suicide cases among teenagers. They cannot adapt with that situation and tends to solve it by attempting suicide. Teenagers commit suicide because they cannot cope with the stress related matter such as depression and substances abuse, but counseling session, reading and watching films, and also highest attention from parents can reduce the number of suicide from increasing day by day. The first causes that cause teenagers to attempt suicide are depression. Depression is one part of a large role in suicide.
Depression Teen depression is much more than feeling temporarily sad or down in the dumps. It 's a serious and debilitation mood disorder that can change the way people think, feel, and function in their daily life. Teens who are depressed may feel hopeless and helpless and it can seem like no one understand and depression is far more common in teens than you may think. Many people assume depression is just a change in behavior that may die out in a few weeks or even a month; however there is much more to it than that. Often, it goes without notice because people don 't want to face the fact or don 't know what is actually going on with them.
Salinger not only develops the story, but he also weaves in how Holden is different from most adolescents, especially through his behaviors. Yet, the novel includes how at an adolescent age, teens encounter much trouble and battles. Moreover, Salinger tries to show how if tragedies occur in your life, they can be very difficult to leave behind, but if you don’t move along, it can cause a mental disorder of depression and it further leads to an irreversible way of life, low self esteem, and self destructive
Introduction. Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD) is defined by the Social Anxiety Institute as “the fear of interaction with other people that brings on self-consciousness, feelings of being negatively judged and evaluated, and, as a result leads to avoidance (…) to feelings of inadequacy, inferiority, embarrassment, humiliation and depression.” (Thomas A. Richards, n.d.) It is one the most common psychiatric disorders that 12% of the population will experience the condition at some point in their lives (Franklin R. Schneier, 2006). However other estimates suggest that the percentage is 20%-41% (Beidel, et al., 1985), as some sufferer’s symptoms may stop them from seeking help. The disorder can lead to depression and substance abuse, what more
Adolescents who reported a history of risk-taking behaviors were much more likely to report substance use-related injuries” (Spirito 113). Why teenagers so frequently engage in these dangerous activities was the topic of the book “Adolescent Risk Behaviors” By Wolfe, Jaffe, and Crooks which explains that relationships between others is the primary factor leading to these behaviors. Teenagers who listen The Downward Spiral by Trent Reznor, a 90’s top chart album, can identify with several of the coping methods that the narrator uses after his relationship with a person close to him comes to an end. The narrator in the album eventually commits suicide after finding none of these coping methods were truly effective, and he was only destroying himself the entire time. The work attempts to warn listeners from
This can cause a person to choose the wrong path in life. Teen angst is a stage that most teenagers go through in which they feel overwhelmed and stressed out. I have previously observed a case of teen angst in the book, “The Outsiders”. This story depicts the reality of how people are often grouped and separated from others based on their social class. In this story, there was an ongoing rivalry between two main groups who were the Socs, a rich and powerful group, and the Greasers, a group that was considered to be uneducated and poor.
There is a huge impact of separation and divorce on young people, children of divorced parents tend to have triple problems, drug uses and crimes however; drug uses and alcohol are the most common problems, which have a huge danger on teens and children. Divorce does not only affect young children but also in their teens and 20s. A very recent survey shows that, problems with drink and drugs played a huge part in children’s lives, 14% admitted that they started drinking alcohol, or more alcohol than they used to, while 13% considered taking illegal drugs because of their parents separation or divorce (Edmunds, 2014, p.1). During a divorce some children go through a difficult time, which might lead to drugs and alcohol and this is another huge problem, many young people admitted that their parents’ divorce or separation actually made them alcoholic or do drugs including marijuana, inhalants, cocaine, uppers, hallucinogens, crack or sedatives. When children go though a divorce they just want to forget what is happing and run from their reality by doing drugs or drinking alcohol.
Teenage suicide occurs due to a variety of reasons.The main cause of teenage suicide is time. People who spend longer in such a chaotic emotional state are far more likely to commit suicide.Time is the main cause. If something begins to bother someone, it starts as a slight irritation that they can put off for a while, but eventually it begins to take over their lives. Over time, they start to lose the ability to cope and this is when they start thinking, and attempting, suicide. For example, in the story Romeo and Juliet, both characters experience or are in a emotional distress or stated of mind.
The intense pain and loneliness may make suicide seem like the only option available. Pathological depression resembles the emotional state that we all have experienced but differs significantly both in intensity and duration. Most depressed patients express feelings of hopelessness, worthlessness, sadness, guilt, and desperation Meyer & Quenzer, (2005). People who are depressed have interpersonal problems. Not only do depressed people have interpersonal problems, but unfortunately, their own behavior also seems to make these problems worst.
When teens grow up, they have to deal with a lot of stress in their life and it may seem difficult for them to control all of the life and hormonal changes. Some adults feel their kids are going to do such that things to pay attention. It is necessary to see warning signs as serious. If you are the parent of a suicidal teen, try to understand listen to them. Keeping the lines of communication between parents and teens is also important.
