Depression & Self-Injury

More than Just a Bad Day: Understanding and Supporting Youth with Depression and Self-Injury

Focus is on caregivers of teens in grades 7-12.

This session will help caregivers increase awareness about adolescents who might be experiencing sadness, depression and intentionally injuring themselves. We will explore factors that contribute to depression and the motivation behind self-injurious behavior. Caregivers will learn about treatment options for depression as well as strategies to help support youth who may be engaging in self-injury.
