Youth with depression left untreated are more likely to abuse drugs and alcohol, suffer academic problems, have difficulties with relationships and family conflicts, have involvement in the juvenile justice system, and be more likely to attempt suicide.

If you know of youth struggling with depression, tell them about our counseling resources, or call us at 573-564-2495 to learn more about how we can help.
