This practice parameter describes the epidemiology, clinical picture, differential diagnosis, course, risk factors, and pharmacological and psychotherapy treatments of children and adolescents with major depressive or dysthymic disorders. Side effects of the antidepressants, particularly the risk of suicidal ideation and behaviors are discussed. Recommendations regarding the assessment and the acute, continuation, and maintenance treatment of these disorders are based on the existent scientific evidence as well as the current clinical practice.
第二,加强营养。良好的饮食结构可以使我们身体机能得到很大的提高,抑郁症患者在日常治疗过程中,除了按时吃药以外日常饮食也是非常需要注意的,有些食物对改善抑郁有较大的益处。如深海瑰宝——鱼。鱼体内的成分Omega-3脂肪酸是天然的抵抗抑郁症的瑰宝。常食用海鱼,会明显降低抑郁症的发病、缓解抑郁情绪。还有快乐水果——香蕉、葡萄柚、樱桃等,其中,香蕉有一种可以令人兴奋和提高情绪精神的物质——生物碱,非常有利于增加人体大脑血清素。血清素的增加有助于,神经细胞的传递,提高大脑神经系统,这也是抑郁症的食疗方法之一。心情法宝——大蒜、南瓜。大蒜和南瓜都是帮助人们恢复心情的法宝。常吃大蒜人们就不会感觉劳累和焦虑,对急躁情绪有所缓解。南瓜中的维生素可以帮助人体补充B6和铁,南瓜被称为天然的人体汽油。合理的饮食对人体本身产生积极因素,都是对抗抑郁的好东西,但是我们还是要注意有些食物不适合患者,如酒、浓茶、咖啡、油炸辛辣等食物,尽可能避免食用。
And one of the things that often gets lost in discussions of depression is that you know it's ridiculous. You know it's ridiculous while you're experiencing it. You know that most people manage to listen to their messages and eat lunch and organize themselves to take a shower and go out the front door and that it's not a big deal, and yet you are nonetheless in its grip and you are unable to figure out any way around it. And so I began to feel myself doing less and thinking less and feeling less. It was a kind of nullity. 

目前我国精神科医师常使用的抑郁症诊断分类系统包括世界卫生组织制定的《国际疾病分类》第十版(International Category of Disease, ICD-10)和美国的《疾病诊断与统计手册》第五版(Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, DSM-V),来帮助评估和诊断青少年抑郁症。研究还发现标准化的评估工具(量表和问卷等)可以帮助提高青少年抑郁症的识别率。成功用于诊断和评估青少年抑郁症的量表和问卷很多, 美国预防服务工作组(Preventive Services Task Force of United States, USPTF)推荐使用的青少年抑郁症筛查量表变包括贝克抑郁自评量表(Beck Depression Inventory,BDI),同时我国目前常用筛查量表还包括流调用抑郁量表(Center for Epidemiological Survey-Depression Scale, CES-D)、Kutcher青少年抑郁量表(Kutcher Adolescent Depression Scale,KADS)、儿童抑郁自评量表(Depression Self-Rating Scale for Children,DSRSC)、儿童抑郁量表(Children's Depression Inventory,CDI)、症状自评量表(Self-Reporting Inventory,SCL-90)等。
ECT亦称电抽搐治疗,拟短时间内适量电流通过患者头部致全身抽搐,而达到治疗疾病目的的一种有效疗法。自1930年问世,ECT拟人工诱导癫痫发作的方法来改善精神分裂症的症状,却在治疗实践中被发现对抑郁症状有明显改善作用。随着技术的发展与成熟,近年来又出现附加简单麻醉和应用肌肉松弛剂的改良ECT(无抽搐ECT),使得治疗更为安全和可接受。ECT具有起效快、效果好等优点,多个临床治疗指南推荐其作为严重抑郁症紧急情况下(如高危自杀风险、极度痛苦、流体摄入不足)的治疗首选[8-9,12-14]。需注意,ECT可能存在一定的脑血管意外、认知功能损害等风险,故治疗前应充分评估风险收益,且治疗后应继续进行抗抑郁症药物治疗,以降低复发风险。ECT治疗抑郁症机制仍待进一步研究,其机制可能涉及激活GABA通路、突触重塑、减少谷氨酸、上调NMDA-NR2B表达等[21]。

患者意志活动呈显著持久的抑制。临床表现行为缓慢,生活被动、疏懒,不想做事,不愿和周围人接触交往,常独坐一旁,或整日卧床,闭门独居、疏远亲友、回避社交。严重时连吃、喝等生理需要和个人卫生都不顾,蓬头垢面、不修边幅,甚至发展为不语、不动、不食,称为“抑郁性木僵”,但仔细精神检查,患者仍流露痛苦抑郁情绪。伴有焦虑的患者,可有坐立不安、手指抓握、搓手顿足或踱来踱去等症状。严重的患者常伴有消极自杀的观念或行为。调查显示,我国每年有28.7万人死于自杀,其中63%有精神障碍,40%患有抑郁症。 [3]  因抑郁症而自杀的不乏名人,包括梵高、海明威、三毛、张国荣、 [3]  徐行、李晓、罗宾·威廉姆斯、乔任梁等 [4]  。消极悲观的思想及自责自罪、缺乏自信心可萌发绝望的念头,认为“结束自己的生命是一种解脱”,“自己活在世上是多余的人”,并会使自杀企图发展成自杀行为。这是抑郁症最危险的症状,应提高警惕。


也是这时候,大概是2015年10月的时候吧,我开始觉得自己非常不
But in 1994, three years later, I found myself losing interest in almost everything. I didn't want to do any of the things I had previously wanted to do, and I didn't know why. The opposite of depression is not happiness, but vitality. And it was vitality that seemed to seep away from me in that moment. Everything there was to do seemed like too much work. I would come home and I would see the red light flashing on my answering machine, and instead of being thrilled to hear from my friends, I would think, "What a lot of people that is to have to call back." Or I would decide I should have lunch, and then I would think, but I'd have to get the food out and put it on a plate and cut it up and chew it and swallow it, and it felt to me like the Stations of the Cross.
