What Are the Types of Depression in Kids and Their Warning Signs?
As adults, we often imagine children as perpetually happy, curious creatures. Without grown-up cares and worries, it's difficult to imagine children being less than joyful when they have so few responsibilities. However, depression often begins in childhood, and recognizing the signs early can be critical to seek proper treatment for your child and framing depression with kindness and compassion.
NMS Clubs and Student Activities
Northwestern will continue to offer many clubs and student activities for our students during the 2021-22 school year. Check back often for more information!
