Scotland is facing a serious problem regarding child depression. Thousands of children are treated for rising patients of depression every year. More detailed research is needed into the dominance and nature of depression among young people. Children of under-18s were developed the tendency of deliberate self-harming by cutting or burning. Depression in young people occurs from a variety of biological, psychological and social factors. Genetic, family discord and discrimination can also be the cause of depression. An epidemiological research says that 1% to 2% of children under the age of 18 will face a depressive disorder each year. And around 6% of young people of the same group can be detected for self-harm at some point in their lives. The statistics of such cases were described as “just the tip of the iceberg” by a leading child psychiatry expert.
