3. Sleep change: Regular problems with falling asleep–or wakening early without being able to go back to sleep–could signal depression.

4. Changes in school work.

5. Changes in socialization.

6. Overreacting to criticism.

7. Sexual promiscuity.

8. Delinquency.

9. Thoughts or threats of suicide.

10. Healthy, well child complaining of illness.
