Watched Prime Time last night and was in awe in how Conor Cusack spoke very comfortably about his battle with depression. He is a model for all. His blog is well worth a read: http://www.independent.ie/blog/conor-cusack-depression-is-a-friend-not-my-enemy-29707558.html
However there is an every growing issue today and that is depression. It affects all young and old, with numbers increasing of young people suffering from depression.
How do we teachers know when pupils are suffering from depression and how do we deal with it as delicately as possible?
