Depression is a mental illness that affects how we think, feel and act.
Those who have made the effort to learn the symptoms or warning signs still often expect depression to look like sadness.
But that leads to us missing the opportunity to help many who present differently. Like children.
In this episode, therapist Susan Ringle, who works with and helps children and their families as a registered play therapist,
shares her behind-the-scenes expertise and tells us what to look for in children
who don’t have the words to tell us what’s going on in their minds and bodies.
