Abstract:

Depression is a mood disorder characterized by the presence of sad, empty or irritable feelings accompanied by somatic and cognitive changes that significantly affect the individual’s capacity to function. Depression affects an individual’s daily living activities such as work, sleeping, eating and concentration on the tasks. The present study was conducted on 500 adolescents i.e., 250 adolescents from urban area and 250 adolescents from rural area studying in 10th, 11th and 12th classes. Children Depression Inventory (CDI) developed by Kovacs (2003) was used to measure the depression among adolescents. Results revealed that urban adolescents were facing the problem of depression at higher level as compared to rural adolescents, adolescents who had 1st ordinal position among their siblings, had problem of ineffectiveness; those having 3 to 4 siblings, had higher negative mood and negative self – esteem and the adolescents who had no land, had higher negative self – esteem which indicate that they require intervention for coming out from depression symptoms.
