Many families don’t know the signs of teen depression or where to turn for help. Erika’s Lighthouse regularly hears from educators and teens of the need to educate and engage families. Erika’s Lighthouse has designed information, resources, workshops and more to equip school communities to better interact with families around depression and mental health.
This free guide can be easily distributed to families experiencing childhood or adolescent depression in their homes.
In collaboration with Shine Light on Depression, school communities can host Family Workshops to engage and educate families.
