Know a Teen Dealing with Depression?

Boys Town is offering a "Coping with Depression Group for Teens" for high school students to help develop their ability to overcome depression. The group meets on Thursdays from 5-6:30 p.m. at the Boys Town Behavioral Health Clinic in Grand Island (2313 N Webb Rd).

What is Coping with Depression?
Coping with Depression consists of three areas of focus:

  • Emotional Regulation (monitoring mood & activity, tension reduction, learning how to engage in positive change)
  • Changing Your Thinking (learning the power of positive thinking & how to dispute irrational thoughts)
  • Communication & Problem Solving (engaging in assertive, effective, & healthy communication)

Wondering if the group is right for your child? The Coping with Depression Group is designed for teens in high school struggling with depression (i.e., sadness, anger,
hopelessness, irritability, social withdrawal, loss of interest in activities, changes in eating or sleeping habits, etc. ) and having difficulties in relationships, school, and/or at home.

If you are interested in the program, an intake appointment will be scheduled (and billed to insurance) to determine if the program is appropriate. To register, call the Behavioral Health Clinic of Grand Island at 308-381-8851 and reference the Coping with Depression Group.
