Is it Depression or just Adolescence? – Wednesday 29th June, 7-8pm, Long Bay College Staffroom.
Presenter: John Meeske, Guidance@Long Bay College, MSc Psychology
This free, 45-minute presentation with 15-minute Q&A will explore the true nature and causes of depression, how we can manage it, and how we can differentiate it from the typical teenage struggles that include lethargy, apathy and social withdrawal.
Strikingly, around one-third of the population appear to be immune to depression. What do they do differently? And can we use those insights to help treat this common struggle?
There will be muffins, tea and coffee provided.
It will be wonderful to see you there!
