Reframing the perspective on depression in young adults; a review of causes and current treatments

Started May 17, 2023

Abstract or project description

In the modern world, depression is a prevalent condition that has an adverse impact on one's feelings, thoughts, and behaviors. While there are many symptoms that characterize depression, losing interest in earlier passions and long periods of sadness are among the most common (Depression, n.d.) . There are many treatments that exist currently in order to treat this condition, these include: medication, psychotherapy, Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), etc. Even though treatments like these exist, many people still suffer from depression and more research is required to fully understand this condition. Here, we will explore the new trends in depression in teens, potential causes for increases in depression incidence, and current and future treatments for depression. In addition, we will focus on ways to change the stigmas associated and surrounding depression and tactics for accepting depression as a transient condition.
