Dealing with teenage depression and other teen problems: "Hey, I'm okay! Don't worry about me." Growing up is not easy. Most grown-ups can attest to that fact. Even "normal," well-adjusted teens have challenges and difficulties such as depression to overcome. There is simply no such thing as a young person without issues.
A group of 16 candid teenage students reveal their challenges and difficulties through their own eyes and in their own words; and they share the steps they've taken towards resolving these issues. In doing so, they help us to discover the truth that every teenage student does have difficulties and challenges; that "you are not the only one" who is dealing with teenage depression, personal issues, and inner conflict; and that growth is a matter of facing our challenges and difficulties, understanding them and doing our best to overcome, resolve and come to peace with them. Issues presented include divorce, teenage depression, family issues, teen peer pressure, isolation, discrimination, drug use, teenage suicide, eating disorders and others. ©2004, Color, 79 minutes.
