Description

Best Our Husky Compact Reflection for "Think Creatively and Critically".

Abstract

This paper explores the reasons why American public schools should implement adolescent depression education into the curriculum of their middle and high schools. The research compiled seeks to explain the necessity for such education, benefits, and drawbacks of the curriculum implementation, as well as the problems that could arise when attempting this kind of change. Mental health issues have been present in adolescents for a long time and adults often still struggle to give these youths the proper resources and care. These findings fuel the discussion of whether or not public schools currently do enough to provide proper services to their students. The research also aids in discussing how they can continue putting the needs of students first and what that might look like in the future.
