Editorial The emotions of teens are very complex things. Teenage depression is on the raise and I think that it might be controlled or it could decrease if we just had more people could find away to help teens in need. Teenage depression isn’t just bad moods. Depression is a serious problem that impacts every aspect of a teen’s life. Left untreated, teen depression can lead to problems at home and school, drug abuse, self-loathing even irreversible tragedy such as homicidal violence or suicide. Fortunately, teenage depression can be treated, and as a concerned parent, teacher, or friend, there are many things you can do to help. You can start by learning the symptoms of depression and expressing concern when you spot warning signs. Talking about the problem and offering support can go a long way toward getting your teenager back on track.

I think that school should be more involved with us teen and our emotions because there is not that many other places that we can go. Plus we have to go to school five days a week. Schools can play a very big part in the help with teenage emotion. At a school they can organize different activities


and programs for teen to that will help us control our emotions in a healthy way. School can also help greatly with sorting out peoples problem and also I thing that there should a lot more counselors for schools. Maybe even one for ever student to have.

I also believe that not only schools but parents should also get involved in helping there own child. Also a parent or close family member knows that teen the best and he or she might be more willing to take help from them. Even friends need to take the steps to help a friend that might be sadder or they are angry a lot. I think that you should help as a friend in any way. Especially if they’re suicidal and they didn’t want u to tell a counselor. Its better have a friend that’s mad at you then one that dies. Overall I think that we need to make more of an effort to helping our teens out with the emotional problems that we go through as teenagers.
