I'm proud to say my blog is now syndicated/published at DFWCatholic.org. :) I am honored to be a part of this great site and Catholic community. If you'd like to follow my blog there click the link to the article or see the link to my blog below.

 

Sadly, I just learned of this young teens video she posted on Youtube over a month ago. Apparently she needed someone to help her and be there for her. She lost her battle with bullying, self-hate, guilt, shame and pain and committed suicide this past week. In her video she held cards explaining her story.

 

The last card simply said:
“I have nobody. I need someone. My name is Amanda Todd.”

 

Please share this post with those you care about, especially the teens in your life.

Movement for Mood: Exercise as a Treatment for Depression

Movement for Mood: Exercise as a Treatment for Depression | suicidal teenagers | Scoop.it

Depression — not to be confused with normal sadness — has been called many things since Hippocrates first described the disease back in the 5th century BC. In fact, it may have been Hippocrates himself who first coined the term melancholy, which literally translates as “black bile.” He believed the feelings of sadness, emptiness and hopelessness associated with depression were caused by a buildup of toxic sludge in the spleen. More recently, psychologist and existentialist Rollo May described the condition as “the inability to construct a future,” while Spanish philosopher George Santayana said it is “rage spread thin.” Essayist and activist Susan Sontag put it more simply: “Depression,” she said, “is melancholia minus its charms.” If you suffer from the disease, you know exactly what she meant.

Her story is one reason to my project. Teens suffer daily by others and I believe that peers is the main cause for teen depression.

This helps me with the signs of depression and how to look for it. It also helps with what to do once you notice someone is depressed.

This article will help me prove that depression can be caused by other factors that may go unnoticed. Also, it can be caused by internal problems rather than external.
