Developed by a consortium of leading universities, this online PDF reference is the sort of reading that counselors, parents, and students should have available when they begin to plan their high school careers.Remember that your computer will have to open Acrobat Reader to open the reference pages and booklet. Be patient if you are on a slower connection.

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.
