PARENTS MOOD DISORDERS is contagious to Children suffering from "DEPRESSION" / IT'S A FAMILY "VIRUS"








Experts said that Depression is "contagious". It is a family virus. A child suffering from depression will recover depending on how the parents and family members will respond to their needs.





The mental health condition of the family is a "social structure", Kelsey R. Howard of Northwestern University said. She added that "We exist in families, we exist in social networks. And a lot of our well-being, a lot of our highs and lows might come from these relationships. Relationships are reciprocal."

"More young people today are reporting persistent feelings of sadness and hopelessness and suicidal thoughts," Howard said.




A study conducted on 325 young respondents who suffered from depression.
