Teens & Depression

This website has been created for teens and their parents, teachers, and school and Young Adult librarians to help them understand teen depression and to provide resources to meet the information needs on this topic for both teens and adults. 

Content on this site gives you a brief overview of teen depression,  a list of  free or low-cost community resources for teenagers in the Philadelphia and the surrounding areas that can help them deal with depression. It also provides annotated lists of books, magazines, video and web sites that address teen depression and selection criteria we used to develop the lists.


About Us

The purpose of this site is to explore and recommend information resources for youth and about youth coping with depression.
