Depression From Relationships As a Teenager Lingers For 25 Years

Research conducted by University of Alberta finds that depression from teen years lingers for 25 years.

We often hear adults jest about beautiful children turning out to be “heartbreakers” throughout their adolescence, but research is showing us that the effects of having heartbreak as a teenager are no laughing matter. In fact, it is something that haunts us for more years than we can imagine. A new study shows that the depression and heartbreak you experienced as a teenager could could linger for 25 years in your future relationships.

Researchers from the University of Alberta conducted a 25-year study on 341 people. Researcher Matthew Johnson said that the purpose of the study was to show that negative emotions (e.g.  depression) that are experienced in high school can actually carry on through your life and affect other relationships that you have. He states that this shows that mental health is extremely important to take care of early on in life, even if you don’t think that it will be a problem later on.

The research for this study was based off of another study that was conducted in 1985, which followed 163 men and 178 women, ages 18 to age 25. The participants were questioned again at age 32 and again at 43 to check on the bonds and stress levels of their current and past relationships. This study was also looking to see if the stress and negative feelings that these participants felt during their teen years had an effect on the bonds that they developed with others later on in life.

The purpose of this kind of research is to show people that they should get mental health help for depression and stress when they are young, so that it does not affect their future relationships.
