Why do I have depression at the age of fourteen?

Hello, i am 14 and i go to an Psychiatrist and i have depression what does this mean? i think it has something to do when i was 6 months and i lost my mother, when i was 6 months old my mother left me because she claimed that she wasn t ready to take care of me. this really had me thinking and i even cry just to think about it. My dad and my grandmother on my dad side raised me, i am 14 years old. and my mother had this mental illness because when i was born i had this internal henrage or something like that. and my dad told me a long story about it. Does this has any effect on people to have depression?

Psychiatrist 's  Response
Many people who have depression in fact do not have family history of mental illness

Depression is treatable, these days, and is not a very life threatening illness

But, you may need constant guidance from your father and a professional

I am proud of your father and grand father for raising you

You focus on your career and keep doing effort

You can do all what any other child can do, but be in regular touch with your doctor

You are most welcome for any such discussion at any time

Good luck, my dear
