Depression must be familiar to everyone.

Almost every once in a while, we can hear some news reports about depression.

However, the recent news is both angry and regrettable.

14-year-old depressed teenager died after being fed Rune water by the master? The master was sentenced to three years in prison

According to media reports, Han's 14-year-old son suffers from depression and abnormal behavior. However, in October 2020, Han contacted the so-called "master" Chen through his friends. Chen casually said that Han's son was possessed by ghosts and gods and needed to be expelled for treatment.

Subsequently, Han's son's physical condition deteriorated rapidly. Chen forced Haonian to drink a bowl of water painted with a spell. As a result, the liquid blocked the respiratory tract, resulting in mechanical asphyxia and death.

Recently, the court sentenced Chen to three years' imprisonment and fined 5000 yuan at the same time.

Alas, a 14-year-old boy was killed by a quack.

After reading this news, I can't help feeling angry and helpless. How many people have been misunderstood?

Depression is actually a common psychological disease

Depression is a common mental disease in today's society.

It is estimated that about 350 million people around the world are affected, of which the prevalence of children can not be ignored, because the disease afflicts patients, but parents do not know much about the disease, they will have a lot of misunderstandings about the disease.

The more serious the depression is, the weaker the patient's resistance is. Especially for children suffering from this disease, parents should understand the child's psychological state, so as to give more support and understanding.

On the contrary, if parents feel that their children are hypocritical and cannot understand their psychological state, they will aggravate their condition, especially children with complex family and school environment, which need more attention.

What are the causes of childhood depression?

In fact, the causes of depression are complex and unclear. Generally speaking, it is influenced by multiple factors, and the effects of these factors on people vary from person to person.

First, parents are strict in discipline

Every mom and dad wants their children to become a dragon and a Phoenix, but the mentality of expecting success may make their children feel pressure step by step.

If parents are too strict with their children, they will let their children grow up in a high-pressure environment and lead to anxiety and depression. Just like yingzi in little joy, her mother's strict prevention has brought her heavy pressure.

Second, it is always difficult for parents to abide by it

Some parents do not know how to educate their children, they will say some inappropriate words in front of their children.

Especially when the child is injured outside and needs to be comforted by his parents, the indifference of his parents and even bad words may become the last straw to crush the child.

Third, social factors

The study found that after experiencing some life-threatening accidents, children have a high probability of traumatic sequelae, and the risk of depression is up to six times.

Especially in the case of death of relatives, divorce of parents, disharmony of parents' marriage and serious physical diseases, it will eventually lead to the brain "spiritual crisis" of depression.

Fourth, drug factors

Scientists have now proved that the decrease of serotonin function can lead to depression, especially when the function of central norepinephrine or 5-HT and its receptors is low. This kind of drug-induced depression has a high probability.

Fifth, heredity

Depression is inherited in families. If one of the two parties has suffered from severe depression, the risk of children suffering from depression is 2-10 times that of the general population.

Children and adolescents are also at high risk of depression

According to the China Health Commission in 2018, nearly 30 million children and adolescents are suffering from depression.

Depression is not a fragile mind, let alone hypocrisy. It is induced by heredity and environment. It is a disease plagued by it all over the world.

In particular, the world facing children is by no means as simple as adults think.

Loneliness is an important risk factor for adolescent depression. Being not accepted by peers has a greater risk of depression than that brought by family, and even is directly related to depression.

Parents' excessive denial, rejection and punishment, and lack of warmth and support are all risk factors for depression. Each time, like a needle, it will continue to pierce into the child's heart.

Those children who are deeply involved in mental health problems are not hypocritical, not fragile, but have kidney disease.

They need help and regular treatment.
