One out of four teens girls struggle with symptoms of major depression, compared to fewer than one in 10 boys. You can’t help but wonder, why are girls suffering more than boys?
Join features editor Marian Sandmaier in conversation with Donna Jackson Nakazawa, author of Girls on the Brink, to explore how little-known neurobiological factors can interact with social pressures to increase vulnerability to depression and anxiety in adolescent girls. They discuss ways that therapists like you can help parents strengthen their daughters’ sense of agency, prepare them to stand up to societal pressure, and help them feel seen and valued.
