Parents – Beware….
Depression! You’ve seen it…heard about it…felt it…yet! As a parent, you might not understand it through the eyes of your child.
Depression is becoming less visible to those who can help, because of social media allowing the privacy of such thoughts, only shared to other teens.
On social media, whom are the teens reaching out to?
Through trending on social media networks, self-harm is becoming more and more transparent to other teens that are not in a position to help depressed students.
For example, as a young teen, myself, when I go on Instagram, it is shocking how many teens are posting photos which are upsetting and depressing. Teens are showing in their photos that life is horrible and not worth living.
