depression – youth

Why this is important: Depression among youth may lead to failure in school, alcohol or drug use, suicide, or other negative outcomes. Although depression is treatable, research estimates two-thirds of children with mental health problems do not get the help they need.

Definition: Percent of youth in grades 8, 10, and 12 who felt so sad or hopeless almost every day for two weeks or more in a row that they stopped doing some of their usual activities.
