So often we read about depression and in today's world it crosses all age groups. I recently read this article about Samantha Little who has written a book 'Into the Fog'. Samantha shares her story of depression and how at 17 years old was faced with this demon and not sure what to do. Age is no barrier to depression and we need to be aware of not only how we feel but also how others are feeling. Your teenager may not just be going through the 'teen years' it could be much deeper than that. As a parent you need to be supportive and encourage open conversations.
If you feel that you or your family or friends need help be supportive and encourage them to contact a psychologist where they can talk freely and in a confidential environment.
