Depression In Teens

A new school year can bring new challenges and struggles for young people. Add on top of that changing bodies and hormones, and it can be a particularly challenging time for teenagers. As parents, we often wonder if our child’s behavior changes are typical or if they are something more that could be cause for concern.

Andy could have spent an hour talking about his body of work over his long career and the famous actors he has worked with, but he did not.
