Is your child stressed or depressed?
Submitted By FUSS Care Community
Is your child starting to manifest a change in his/her behavior?
Does he/she stop doing things that he/she loves?
Has he/she been developing eating problems or sleep disturbances?
Do you find your child isolating himself/herself from others?
Does he/she become sad or irritable easily?
Does he/she express a sense of hopelessness?
Does he/she perceive him/herself as being imperfect or a failure?
Are his/her grades declining?
If you have observed the above symptoms in your child, he/she may be suffering from depression. FUSS would like to build community support to address this issue. If you or someone you know, are feeling depressed or stressed and are having problems with studying and learning at school or home, please contact your school counselor or school psychologists promptly.
