This is Your Brain on Depression
This interactive lesson plan teaches students about the causes, symptoms, and treatment options for teen depression. Students are split into two groups to research aspects of depression and then asked to present a poster with their findings to the class. They also create a pamphlet on teen depression as a homework assignment.
