Depression in children


❗️Sport & Depression in Children.

.

Mental Health Awareness Week takes place from Monday 18 to Sunday 24 May 2020 in the UK, so we thought that it's a good moment to talk about depression and physical activity.

.

🏋🏻‍♀️Participating in sports can help to reduce risk factors and improve depression and anxiety symptoms.

.

Studies suggest that people who follow the recommendations of the World Health Organization (WHO) to exercise (150 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity per week) have better mental health than those who are less involved in sports.

.

Most studies are conducted in adults, but what about children?🧐

.

According to one study (published in Biological Psychiatry: Cognitive Neuroscience and Neuroimaging) children who participate in team sports have less depressive symptoms.

.

In this study physical activity was correlated with increased brain region volume (hippocampus), which is essential for memory and stress response.

.

The results provide significant information on how exercise can affect adolescent brain development, and suggest a way to reduce or avoid depression in children.

.

🧠Sport has an impact on brain development and mood not only in adults, but also in children.

.

👉Parents directly affect children's motivations to play sports. If you want your child to be happy and active, you should also engage in physical activity to give a good example to your child.
