Course Description: The rising rates of depression among young people are increasing. Mental-health crises are ubiquitous amongst teenagers, particularly post-pandemic as suicide contemplation increased and persistent feelings of hopelessness are on the rise. This course will investigate the reasons behind teen angst and the ways in which their sadness impacts the classroom. Participants will develop strategies that conquer and combat these issues and instruct their students to persevere as they utilize a myriad of coping mechanisms available in the course. Lessons that combat depression utilizing texts and articles will be centered on. *A must for K-12 educators!!*
