Nurturing Your Child's Mental Health

If Your Adolescent has Depression

If Your Adolescent Has Bipolar Disorder

  • From 2019 to 2021, rates of anxiety and depression doubled worldwide.

  • Right now, suicide is the second leading cause of death for adolescents.

Being a parent is rarely easy, and parenting adolescents and teens is no exception. Your child’s brain and body are changing profoundly and quickly. Fluctuating hormones spark emotional storms. It’s all part of the bargain you didn’t know you’d made when you first held that tiny infant in your arms.

Most parents manage to navigate the ups and downs, trust­ing they won’t last forever. Yet sometimes dramatic changes in moods are wake-up calls to more serious problem.

Learn more about the early warning signs of clinical depression and bipolar disorder, and discover the supports that are available to parents, educators, and mental health professionals.
