    We live in an age of high stress, and the results of the latest Student Health Survey reveal that 79% of Brookline 7-8th graders report overwhelming stress and anxiety, which can reflect a more serious issue with depression and/or anxiety. Unlike an occasional bout of the blues or situational depression, clinical depression is a serious medical condition that needs diagnosis and treatment, which can range from therapy to medication. For some basic guidelines, check out the MENTAL HEALTH page of http://www.B-PEN.org  for “Getting Help” resources and B-PEN’s Parent Update on “Adolescent Anxiety and Depression.” BHS’sPrevention/Intervention Team is available for confidential information, resources, and counseling, and has recently started a Parent Network for those whose 6th-12th grade students are having social/emotional challenges – contact Hope Schroy, hope_schroy@brookline.k12.ma.us
