IS MY TEEN JUST MOODY?
An overview on adolescent depression
Parents often wonder how to distinguish “normal” teenage mood swings from
symptoms of something more serious. Westport Public Schools, in partnership
with Effective School Solutions, presents a workshop that explores the signs and
symptoms of clinical depression and will help parents explore their concerns.
Participants will receive an overview of child and adolescent depression, learn
how depression can impact school performance, and develop an understanding
of treatment options.
