Wellness Wednesday
Depression often shows up during the teen years, and it can derail a student's health and schoolwork. Consult a school counselor, doctor or other professional if your teen has developed any of these warning signs: problems sleeping or getting up, a loss of appetite, a drop in grades that lasts more than one grading period, a strong interest in poetry or music about death, or abuse of alcohol or drugs.
