“Even for me life had its gleams of sunshine.” Charlotte Brontë
I have yet to come across a child with a diagnosis of depression. In fact, I am guessing that would be very rare thing. I have been doing some reading and it seems there is come controversy over whether a child can even be clincially depressed. I believe they can. I believe I have dealt with this without knowing what I was dealing with. We are very lucky at the school I work at to have an excellent guidance councillor that can help guide us in working with students with mental health issues. I do not feel confident at this point in my career to tackle this issue with the help of a professional seasoned in the area.
