JUPITER, Fla. - Sept. 29, 2022 - PRLog -- According to the CDC, 36.7% of teens ages 12-17 have persistent feelings of sadness and hopelessness.
Teen depression is a serious mental health problem that causes feelings of sadness and loss of interest in activities. It affects how a teenager thinks, feels, and behaves and it can cause emotional, functional and physical problems.
ARISE created "20 Tips for Dealing with Depression" which is a simple tool to engage at risk youth in an open discussion about ways to deal with depression. This book is not a therapeutic tool but a way to sit down with a group of middle and high school at-risk youth to talk about things that may help them in dealing with life's problems.
