Teen Depression Created by: Nathaniel Rodriguez

Depression: a prolonged feeling of extreme sadness. Approximately 20 percent of teens will experience depression before they reach adulthood. (© 2015 I Need a Lighthouse. All Rights Reserved.)

If you or someone close to you are feeling depressed, or have experienced depression, there are ways to get help. Talk to people who will listen to what you have to say; maybe a loved one, or a professional. If you feel like there is no one to help you, there is, you just have to find them.
