Updated: June 24, 2016 - 2:31 am

Depression is a serious condition that can impact a teen’s performance at school or work, as well as his or her interactions with family and friends. Studies show that one out of every eight teenagers has depression. When depression is severe—known as major depressive disorder, or MDD—it can cause great harm, including an increased risk of suicide.
