Many teenagers suffer from depression because of the many things they have to deal with at that age. Not only do they feel pressure to do well in school and study hard from people such as teachers and parents, but also have relationships, puberty and friendships to deal with. They may also worry tha…t their problems will be spread around as "gossip" which can be very emotionally straining. Try to imagine a celebrity's problems being "exposed" to the public. This is very hard for teenagers to deal with. On top of all this they must think about their future and what they want to do for the rest of their life. This can cause great stress and often this stress can get on top of them and lead to depression. Sometimes this can lead to suicidal thoughts and can be very difficult to deal with. If you or anyone you know is in this position it is important to seek professional help. Tell an adult you trust and they may be able to arrange this for you. Sometimes just talking about your problem can help you learn how to deal with it by yourself. You should try to learn to focus on the good things in life such as the people you love and wipe out the bad things that are causing the depression. Its very tough to learn and can take some time but in the end should be worth it. Try to remember that how you feel is up to you. If you think you are depressed and feel down then you will be. If you think you are happy and have many good things to look forward to in life then you will be happy.there is many othere reason people suffer from depression sometimes they have to deal with family and people have worse depression because others r trying to get them to talk to people but it isn't always the best thing because the people may not want help and it would just maake it worse.

At first, the war itself caused so much destruction that it tooktime for the countries involved to recover. Additionally, most ofthe major combatants had run up massive debts to fight the war, andstruggled to pay them off. Germany had the added effects of thereparations and Ruhr occupation, which hu…rt their economy as well.But by the mid-1920s, most countries had largely recovered and somewere actually doing better than before the war- even Germany,thanks to help from the US. However, this all came to an abrupt end in 1929. It's complicated,and the exact reasons differ based on which economist you ask, butthe US suffered an economic crisis punctuated by the stock marketcrash of Black Tuesday in October 1929. Subsequently, the Londonstock market also crashed, and some major banks failed. This causeda domino effect, where other countries' economies also collapsed. (MORE)
