With the promotion of examination-based education in China, Chinese adolescents are studying hard and facing the pressure of comparison and competition with others. The number of places for continuing education and work provided by China is far lower than the demand, leading adolescents to bear the pressure of competition among their peers. In this social development environment, the incidence of depression among adolescents in China increases. Aiming at this phenomenon, we have carried out an in-depth study on this psychological disorder. Contemporary Chinese clinicians rely too much on adolescents’ psychological evaluation and self-description. This paper understands the etiology of current Chinese adolescent depression from physiological factors, psychological factors, and sociocultural factors. It provides the differences in using the spiritual evaluation standard manual between China and the United States, CCMD-3 and DSM-5. The purpose is to let readers better understand the comprehensive field of depression. At the same time, to make readers not blindly believe in the psychological tools on the Internet. We also listed in detail the treatment methods of depression, such as medication treatment, psychotherapy, and physiotherapy, which allow more people to understand the fundamental treatments on depression. The Chinese government should promote the content related to depression and invest more money and time in relevant research. In addition, the Chinese government should train more psychological counselors and clinicians who can make high use of psychotherapy and physiotherapy.
