Families for Depression Awareness is presenting a free, 1-hour, 15-minute Teen Depression webinar on Tuesday, March 1st at 7:00 PM ET / 4:00 PM PT. The program is designed for teens, parents, teachers, school counselors and staff, youth workers, and anyone interested in teen mental health.

Join us for a live webcast discussion with an expert in teen depression, a young adult who has struggled with depression, and his mother who has both supported him and survived the loss of another son to suicide.

During the webinar, you'll hear - and be able to ask questions - about how to

  • recognize depression in teens
  • talk to teens about depression
  • get help for a struggling teen
  • address challenges such as the refusal of help.

About our Presenters:

  • Mary Fristad, PhD, ABPP, is a Professor of Psychiatry, Psychology, and Human Nutrition at the Ohio State University and the Director of Research and Psychological Services in the OSU Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. Her area of specialty is childhood mood disorders.
  • Colin, a speaker in the Families for Depression Awareness Teen Depression program, is a senior in college in Boston. He has depression and also lost his brother, Andrew, to suicide.
  • Sheila, Colin’s mother, has supported her children with depression and survived the loss of her son, Andrew, to suicide. She is a proponent of depression education for parents of teens. 

After the webinar, complete our online evaluation and we’ll send you a free set of Depression and Bipolar Wellness Guides for Parents and Teens, in English or Spanish.
