Child and Adolescent Mood Disorders

Mood disorders are among the most common disorders in children and adolescents. They presage later emotional difficulties and disabilities. An understanding of the disorders presentation, common contributing factors and methods of intervention will enable paediatricians and family doctors to provide optimal support to these children and their families. The exact cause of mood disorders in adolescents is not well known. There are chemicals within the brain that are responsible for positive moods. Other chemicals in the brain, referred to as neurotransmitters, regulate the brain chemicals that have an effect on mood. Sometimes neuronal imbalance within the brain on its own or along with environmental factors like surprising life events and/or chronic stress also results in Mood Disorders.
