Depression has been addressed and it will be probably addressed in many papers from now
on, both in terms of its causes, manifestations as well as the science attempts to discover a “panacea”
a holistic efficiency treatment on what some scientists call it affective-behavioral disorder.
Depression is a condition active among both the adult population and the pediatric population.
Pediatric depression is currently a field of research among specialists, but one of the triggering or
favored factors that managed to intrigue the specialists is the cognitive overloading of children and
adolescents in order to achieve a high school performance.
