    If you feel a child is suffering from depression then you need to consult a professional. This could be a medical doctor, a social worker at school, or anybody who is qualified in these matters.
       From my (inexpert) experience, a child who is depressed generally wants to be alone, has no appetite, is doing poorly in school, takes no interest in anything, and/or starts hanging with kids who have similar qualities.
       Don't mistake depression, which can be a long-term debilitating disease, for feeling moody once in awhile.
