Let’s Talk About, Understand & Help Others With Teen Sadness & Depression!
One of the biggest challenging facing teens today is trying 2 balance academics,activities & a social life. Our lives can B stressful. I think it's important 4 teens 2 know that ALL of us experience sadness at times. But it's also important 2 realize when the sadness is not normal & when it might be depression.
When I was going through a difficult time & feeling really sad, I didn't want 2 share my feelings with anyone because I was embarrassed & thought I might B labeled as a "drama queen", as being "overly sensitive" or even "crazy". I also felt very alone. I eventually spoke 2 my parents & did some research online & realized there were things I could do that would help me deal with & understand my sadness. This is why this website was born. I hope it helps others who may be experiencing sadness like I did!
We R raising awareness by speaking up, reducing
the stigma associated with sadness & depression,
presenting information & offering a place to share .
