Any illness can cause a long-lasting affect on someone but it should be treated more promptly when the brain is still in development and the consequences are less severe. I can say that as a person who had known people to suffer from depression, that even when they are better, it has an affect on them that normally wouldn't have happened if the illness was properly treated at a younger age.

This is primarily because of the young mindset which makes them feel imperishable and exempted from the consequence they see others face, but this is merely the mask of youth.

It is important to realize that adolescents diving into these habits is most often due to their life circumstances. These reasons are to be investigated and understood by parents and health workers to help their children recover.
