Youth suffer with depression alone

Depression is on the rise among adolescents and young adults and many are facing it alone. Many factors have been cited as contributing to the decline including the weakening of traditional social institutions where meaningful relationships were developed in the past. Social media's influence is also being examined. Bellin Health Community Engagement Team Leader Jody Anderson says that nearly two-thirds of depressed youth struggle without help.


Bellin Health is teaming up with the Luxemburg-Casco School District to offer Youth Mental Health First Aid training on November 18th and 19th to help address the situation.
