London: Stressed teenagers could face double the risk of developing depression in early adulthood, say experts.The pressures of modern life may be more hazardous to our mental health than previously believed after scientists found there may be a link between the recent rise in mood disorders and the increase of daily stress.
"Cortisol is something you secrete when faced with situations that are hard to deal with or challenging situations beyond your ability to cope," he added. The study looks at offspring of parents who have a bipolar disorder but who do not have mental health issues themselves. It is already known from previous studies that such offspring are at higher risk of developing depression and bipolar disorders. The team has been following 150 children age four to 12 for a decade, half with parents without mental health issues, the other half with at least one parent with bipolar disorder. IANS
