Lee Thompson was known to many people as a Disney TV star on The Famous Jett Jackson. Later in life he co-starred on TNT’s Rizzoli & Isles. But his rising star had plummeted due to years of depression and he committed suicide in August.
Thompson’s autopsy found no illicit drugs in his body, but he had a history of bipolar disorder and depression which he treated with quetiapine fumarate and lithium.
One of the main strategies schools use to prevent students from using street drugs is drug testing. Testing proponents believe it’s a deterrent for at-risk athletes and students, but some experts disagree, saying it’s not at all effective at discouraging drug use among high school students.
Introduction to substance use often occurs during adolescence. Teens may be willing to take risks that adults are not, experimenting with substances that carry dangerous side effects. Some teens may go on to develop a substance abuse problem which may plague them into adulthood.
Students returning to school this fall found stricter rules in place governing study drugs like Adderall and Ritalin. The stimulants, which promise an extra boost of energy and focus to help students make it through exams and activities requiring focus, are now a no-go at dozens of colleges and universities across America amid a crackdown on the non-medical use of prescriptions.
A new study published in JAMA Psychiatry in September 2013 shows that children at “double-risk” for depression experience positive results from cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT.) The study followed 316 teenagers with a history of depressive symptoms, who also have at least one parent with current or past depression. The results of the study show that those teenagers who underwent a series of group CBT sessions known as cognitive behavioral prevention (CBP) were less likely to experience depressive symptoms or depressive episodes later on.
A variety of studies in recent years have shown a correlation between television watching and depression. Some of these studies have suggested a cause and effect relationship between excessive television or television at certain times of day and the development of depression. Other studies have shown that certain television-related behaviors are symptoms of depression, and can be used to help diagnose mental illness.
Studies have shown that the earlier in life someone uses drugs, the more likely they are to develop an addiction. As parents, being able to recognize the telltale signs of substance abuse in our children is vital in order to protect their future. One of the first signs of drug use to appear is a change in appetite. Teens that suddenly begin to gorge themselves and those that seem to suddenly boycott food are likely at risk of using substances ranging from marijuana to amphetamines. These drugs will also change the teens’ normal sleep patterns.
