teen depression

Connecting with Kids posted a helpful article on identifying signs of depression in teenagers.  While I do not agree with their prescriptions for treating these kinds of problems (as they do not flow out of a biblical worldview of sin & redemption), I do think there is merit in their research on common symptoms.  I post this simply out of the urgency of cases in recent weeks where students in our ministry at Highview have either been cutting themselves or threatening their parents with the suicide card: “Do X or I will kill myself.”
