In brief: Treatment

Loss of interest in life is seen in depression.
Depression is a serious medical problem that requires treatment. Treatment should include both therapy and medication. I would strongly encourage you to ask your doctor for a referral to a child psychiatrist.

In brief: Teens

Involve them in meaningful activities that they would excel at & compete at, with continued positive reinforcement & encouragement as well as rewards for achievement.
Group activities & competitive sports are vital.
