Episode 4 is about ‘Teen Depression”. Our teenagers today face pressures that many of us, as parents, could have never imagined dealing with in our teens. Their worlds consist of struggles from social media, making the grade, impressing peers with the latest brands, to competitive sports. Often times, our young adults are sizing themselves up to their counterparts and even while part of a group find themselves feeling isolated and empty.
Teen depression is more than hormonal moodiness its pervasive in their thoughts and alters their behaviors. Teen suicide is the second leading cause of death in our young people. This episode will help parents, caregivers, and educators understand some of the signs of teen depression and how to provide support to those in need.
