Heading off to college, especially as a freshman, is exciting!
It can also be a very stressful and potentially-dangerous time.
We strongly recommend familiarizing yourself with the signs of depression,
and making your student aware of them too,
so that if they present you recognize them
and take steps to get support before a crisis.
In today’s episode, a re-broadcast,
a college student shares the story of his struggle with depression and how,
with the help of his parents and a network of friends he once denied having,
he has learned to manage his illness
and live a life he once thought impossible.
