You are a teacher, a parent, a social worker? Learn to identify the signs of youth depression and how to intervene with the Partners for Life program.


According to the World Health Organization,

depression is the leading cause of disease and disability in adolescents, and suicide is one of the five leading causes of death among young people.[1] More than ever, raising awareness among teenagers about the signs and symptoms of depression is essential. That’s why the Mental Illness Foundation is proud to announce that since the creation of the Partners for Life program in 1998, 1 million young Quebecers have learned to recognize the signs and symptoms of depression.
