I'm increasingly suspicious that my precious ds1 (7) may be depressed. He is so utterly down on himself and life and has wild outbursts over the most simple things. He doesn't stay completely down all day, but he does get in ruts where he doesn't seem genuinely happy for several days.
Both dh and I are on ssri's and we both have depression on both sides of our families.
I'm in Canada and I'm wondering what I should do if I suspect depression in my child. Do I talk to my psychiatrist? Do I talk to our family dr.? Do I contact our community health nurse? Do I seek out a good psychiatrist?
Does anyone have any good info online that I can look over first and maybe discuss it with dh?
Thanks so much in advance.
