Why are we seeing depression among children and adolescents at such a prevalent rate? Why is depression in school so common? There are several reasons, which are discussed below. As you review these items, keep in mind that this is not an exhaustive list.
This list can be discouraging, but there are many resources available to help. In addition to the books we have shared below, we have a FREE My Unique Gifts craftivity based on the book A Flicker of Hope that you can do with students. In this activity kids will explore their own special gifts and qualities that they can share with others. “You are needed. You are here for a reason. No one else in the world has a light like yours!”
