Abstract

For many teenagers, today depression is more thanjust a case of the blues. An estimated 6 - 30% percent of teenagers suffer from clinical depression. Life is not always happy and carefree, and for many adolescents, these are not the best years of their lives. Given the prevalence and seriousness of adolescent depression, it is important that teenagers suffering from this disorder receive quick and effective treatment. Since most teenagers spend a majority of their day in schools, school counselors play a critical role in addressing teenage depression. The importance of this paper was to examine the causes for depression and how depression manifests itself in adolescence. Three levels of prevention are examined on how school counselors can implement effective ways to address teenage depression within high schools
