Teens & Depression: How Parents Can Notice and Help | E44

Teen suicide attempts are going up. We did a podcast on it earlier this year. Would you know if your child was depressed or considering suicide? A new study from C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital at the University of Michigan says most parents think they’d know and yet they still have some uncertainty.

We talked with Sarah Clark, co-director of the C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital National Poll on Children’s Health about the study, what parents should know and how they can help their teens.

Thank you for joining me for the Positively Dad journey! My name is James Shaw and I'm a husband and father. I live in the Tampa Bay area with my wife, Terri and our young daughter, Naomi. The goal with Positively Dad for us to think, learn and grow. It's easy to get caught up in the day to day and miss opportunities to become amazing fathers. I trust that the conversations we have on Positively Dad will help you see that fatherhood is truly a journey and that we are better together than figuring it all out on our own.
