People with symptoms of Depression can be from all walks of life and all age groups, as well as children. There is no age limit for a person to experience symptoms of Depression.
All people with differing backgrounds can experience differences with their symptoms of depression varying from person to person. Often children, young person or older people with symptoms of depression, can be referred to as being moody or depressed.
People of all ages are affected by what is going on around them in their daily lives. With a young person, the behaviour of their parents is a major influence on their mood and responses. When young people or children are constantly witnessing friction between the parents, or the young person is being bullied from siblings or other children at school, then often the child will display a flat depressed mood, and even feel angry sometimes.
