What to do if…

You are worried about a girl in your class who is always tired and looks like she is depressed.


Her depression may have nothing to do with sexual exploitation. But it also can. You should talk to her and ask her if she’s ok. She may not be able to tell you that she is depressed or why she is depressed. Depression can just comes on its own or there might be something else going on. Your friend might be interested in talking with another teen who understands her https://teenlineonline.org/ or reaching out for support by text at the Crisis Text Line by texting “Home” to 741741 from anywhere in the USA.
