Teen Depression and Suicide Prevention

Recently, I presented to a group on Teen Depression and Suicide Prevention. Here is a link to this presentation. Here are some warning signs:

Changes in personality: sadness, withdrawal, irritability, anxiety, exhaustion, indecision

• Changes in behavior: deterioration in social relationships and school and/or work performance, reduced involvement in positive activities

• Sleep disturbance: insomnia, oversleeping; nightmares

• Changes in eating Habits: loss of appetite, weight loss, or overeating

• Fear of losing control: erratic behavior, harming self or others

If you are concerned about someone you know, please seek professional counseling services for an assessment and support!
