FOX5NY put the focus on depression as one of the hurdles some Bronx teens have to climb to be successful. In fact, the story explained results of a Pew Research Study that shows teens acknowledging anxiety and depression as a number-one issue for their peers.
The story includes an interview with a Harvard Ph.D. student who admits that stress and depression growing up in the Bronx were to be reckoned with. He was fortunate to have professional intervention.
There’s also an interview with a Licensed Clinical Psychologist who stresses the importance of teens simply having someone to talk to as an antidote to roping in the problem.
