Minding Your Mind

After having the presentation this morning on Mental Illnesses, I believe that I am extremely more knowledgeable on the subject. Teen suicide is a very touchy topic, but it is real and important, and more people should know how to handle it. If I were a parent, and had a child suffering from depression, and I would try to seek therapy immediately. If, one day, I become a teacher, and I see any signs of depression from a student, I would be quick to contact the principal, the parents, and if necessary, the authorities. Hearing from the speaker today, I have learned that the right the to do is to talk to someone, whether it be a teacher, a friend, or a parent. The wrong thing to do, however, is to fall into bad habits of drinking, using drugs, or simply holding in anger. Hopefully, someday in the near future, we may see an end to this tragic mental illness.
