Teenagers of any gender can experience depression and anxiety. What are the signs and symptoms? What should parents do? Join the Pink Sari’s initiative and ask the panel of experts in the fields of child psychiatry, psychology, and education to learn more about how to recognise and respond to the signs of anxiety and depression in children. Rupa Parthasarathy, Art Therapist (top right), Dr Saroja Srinivasan, Clinical Psychologist (bottom right), and Hamsa Venkat, School Teacher (bottom left) discuss the mental health issues experienced by teenagers.
