Teen Depression Breaks Through All Stereotypes

Teen Depression Breaks Through All Stereotypes

 

I remember the day I was in a store helping my junior high son pick out a hockey jersey worn by his favorite team.  I picked up one with the right number and player name but he responded, “No dad.  If I wear that brand it will mean I belong to such and such group.”  Once more I was reminded that clothes, haircuts, music, friends, school activities and more help define the various “groups” that teens join.  Unfortunately along with the various “groups” come a plethora of stereotypes denoting which group outsiders think is “good” and which is “bad.”  The “monster” we call teen depression has no bias for one group or another.  This “monster” feeds on teenagers regardless of age, socio-economic status, or social group, killing some teens and stealing huge chunks of life from others.

 

There is hope for those suffering from teenage depression.  Check out my website www.survivingteendepression.com for more info.  My You Tube video, “Teens Surviving the Storm,” has been popular with teens and adults.
