At this month's school assembly we had a mental health presentation about Teenage Depression.
If students are feeling depressed, they are encouraged to reach out and talk about it with someone they trust and ask an adult for help. At school, they can always talk to Guidance, Contact, BTA, the Principal, Vice Principal or a Teacher.
Asking for help is not a sign of weakness. There is a solution to every problem if you open up and talk about it. If someone is suffering from depression they need to get help from a mental health professional and receive treatment as soon as possible, like therapy and medication.
