    ADHD, behavior problems, anxiety, and depression are among the most commonly diagnosed mental disorders in children. Sadness is a normal human emotion.  We will encounter life experiences that make us sad such as moving, disappointment, death, transitions (i.e., parent/caregiver separation, divorce), and adverse childhood experiences such as poverty, family crises, mental illness of family members, incarceration of loved ones, and other negative experiences which affect us emotionally. 

    Know that help is available and reach out for support for your depression. You.are.not.alone.
