Did you know that suicide is one of the top ten causes of death in the US? During the COVID-19 pandemic, one in four young adults considered suicide. These statistics are chilling, but what are we to do about them? We must become equipped in recognizing the signs of depression and suicide. Our friends at Focus on the Family have put together a short podcast series that will help you love your teens well by knowing these signs. Their trained experts will give biblical guidance, practical advice, and provide hope for you and your family.
Topics covered include:
What are the signs of depression in teens?
What causes depression in teens?
Seeking help and finding hope.
This podcast series is hosted by Dr. Joannie DeBrito, featured during our Summit Basecamp series, Helping Teens Find Hope: Anxiety, Depression, Suicide.
Mental health connects with every other component of our health, including our emotional, relational, physical, and spiritual health. If one is out of balance, our children’s mental health can tip off-center. Therefore, we must work to keep each of these components balanced.
Dr. DeBrito is the current Director of Parenting and Youth at Focus on the Family. If you’re looking for more resources to become equipped to reach teens experiencing anxiety, depression, suicide, or other mental health concerns, watch the 3-hour event lectures, click here.
