Hi. We’re glad you’re here to learn more.

Worrying that you or someone you love has depression can be overwhelming. You are not alone. Hope and help is possible and it all starts with a little education. Welcome to our Teen Depression Toolbox.

The “help” page is designed for people who are worried someone they care about may have depression. This section includes information on how to help someone access help and how to provide ongoing support and encouragement to those you love with this illness.
