This site offers a nice on-line collection of many of the fairy tales that are a staple of preschoolers' lives. Teachers and parents will find these useful, but should note that archaic language of the late nineteenth century versions that appear here may prove troublesome. Still, this is a useful resource.

This PBS site for preteens and teenagers offers a fairly literate introduction to the differences between "the blues" and serious clinical depression - both major and manic. The site explains terms, discusses symptoms, and suggests ways to distinguish among these and get help for them. There is lots of information here, in a presentation that will be helpful to students who know they need help - or who know someone who may need help.
