ONE CALL CAN MAKE A DIFFERNCE!
Middle and high school can be a challenging time for everyone.
The independence and expectations can be a lot of fun, but they can also be stressful and scary. Your classes are more demanding, friendships can become complicated, and planning for the future can seem like a heavy weight. It’s normal to feel overwhelmed and down at times. However, when you or someone you know feels that way for more than a couple of weeks, it might be a sign of depression and time for you to ACT.
Acknowledge that your friend has a problem and needs help
Care: Let your friend know you care about them
