Teen Depression is the topic being discussed at the fourth Circle of Support session, held Wednesday March 20 from 6:30-8pm at the Prairie Winds Event Center in Orange City. Recent surveys indicate that as many as one in five teens suffers from clinical depression. Depression can destroy the very essence of a teenager’s personality, causing an overwhelming sense of sadness, despair, or anger. This important discussion and presentation will be led by Joan Andres, LMFT, LMHS, student therapist at Northwestern College, along with local parent Melissa Oolman. The session, open to the public, is hosted by Bethesda Christian Counseling. Light refreshments will be served. There is no cost to attend. Circle of Support is a collaborative series of free sessions — sponsored by Orange City Area Health System, the MOCHA Kiwanis Club, Community Health Partners, and Creative Living Center — revolving around the critical cultural issues impacting our youth today. These sessions offer strategies and resources for adults invested in teens and pre-teens, presented by experts and offering time for questions and conversations.
