    Message from the MPA: 

    Join the Minuteman Parent Association for an evening discussion with a guest speaker from Families for Depression Awareness   

      
    When: March 12, 6 pm – 7 pm 

    Where: Minuteman High School  

    Did you know that one out of every five teenagers struggle with depression? 

    According to Families for Depression Awareness, depression can interfere with everyday life for teens and can lead to academic failure, substance abuse, bullying or being bullied, eating disorders, and suicide.  Teen depression is often mistaken for normal teen angst. Many of the behaviors associated with adolescence — moodiness, anger, social withdrawal — may actually be signs of depression. 

    After this one-hour discussion you’ll leave with an understanding of: 

    • How to recognize the signs of stress and depression 
    • What support services are available to you 
    • How to work with your health insurance provider 

    Families for Depression Awareness will be providing an educational session for Minuteman teachers prior to this parent event.  After this parent event, the group will provide an educational session for students.  

    We look forward to seeing you all on March 12.  
      

    Other Upcoming Events: 

    • Monthly MPA meetings will resume later in March.  We are in a rebuilding year and will offer a combination of in-person meetings and conference calls to make it very easy for parents to participate.   
    • Parent breakfast with principal George Clement - coming in April 
    • Teacher appreciation breakfast - coming in May
