Ted Talk

Below is a Ted Talk that Megan Shinnick, a social activist, gave in 2015 called “The truth about teen depression” where she talks about her personal story of living with depression and how this disease affects teenagers. This video will give you a good introduction to similar information I will be discussing in my project.

    I really like your page and how instead of having lots of text to read you gave us quick lists to go through to self educate a bit and then further explained everything with your videos. I do wish that you went into a little more depth instead of just putting in pictures of lists of symptoms and treatments, getting diagnosed and the types of disorders. What I also really enjoyed about your page were the statistics you included as I did not know that information before. Good job!

    I liked how you included a lot of infographics and statistics. The comparison tables distinctively showed the connections between depression and anxiety. Your videos were very informative and it really helped me understand further about this topic. The presentation of statistics right after the introduction video was a very good hook. Good Job.
