Depression Resources for Schools

What is depression? Everyone feels low at some time during their life, but most people get better gradually and their sad mood fades. However, for some these feelings of depression linger and escalate. What are the signs of depression?

Symptoms of depression include:

  • ongoing sad feelings
  • low self-esteem
  • worry
  • anxiety
  • anger and aggression
  • depressive mood
  • lack of energy
  • problems sleeping
  • guilt or remorse

Causes of depression can include:

  • bullying
  • conflicts at home
  • body chemistry
  • hormones
  • genetics
  • medication
  • diet

Depression can also follow a long illness, or it can stem from outside circumstances such as bereavement.

Teenage Depression

Worryingly, depression is on the increase among teenagers and young people. They need help overcoming depression before they develop severe depression symptoms which could then become a long-term problem in their lives.

All Resources provides resources to encourage openness and frank discussion on the delicate issues of depression. They contain information on dealing with depression and support for beating depression and the feelings of depression.
