Abstract

Mood disorders are among the most common psychiatric disorders and the incidence of depressive disorders is on the rise. A depressive disorder deeply permeates every aspect of life and affects the whole family. We can thus say that the disease of the individual takes effect on the whole family, especially its most vulnerable members. As there is no age limit for the occurrence of depression, the question is how this disease affects children, that is, how growing up with a depressed parent influences the child’s psychosocial development and formation of personality.

Keywords
