This chapter on mental health of children and adolescents focuses on the statistics of
child depression and ways to cope with this disease. As well, this chapter discuses the social
impact, and the effect depression has on everyone. I will use these statistics in my paper to
discuss how depression can tie into the El Paso community and the effects it has on the city.

This article explains the affects depression has, what to look for such as depression signs
in adolescents. Also it has statistics about children who have depression and prevention
opportunities or treatment options. I can use this article to explain how depression affects
adolescents and people around them and use the prevention and treatment options to conclude
the paper with some solutions to this problem in El Paso.

This article, explains why and how ethnicity of Latinos effects how many adolescents
become depressed. This article compares 8th grade Latino students to 8th grade European and
African American students with the use of (ACM) alcohol, cigarettes, and marijuana. As well
perceived discrimination has a huge impact on why adolescents encounter discrimination so
much. I can use this article to explain how the ethnicity of one plays a huge factor is depressive
symptoms. Especially since most of El Paso is Latino.

In this news report, it explains how a 13-year-old had depression and how he spoke up
and possibly saved his life. This news report as well has many statistics such as relapse of
depression. Plus, Dr. Moreira states a few signs to look for if your child is depressed. I can use
this news report to establish that the environment is crucial to a childs health state. Especially
since this childs heritage is Latino and this took place in El Paso.

This website shows the types of data in El Paso by using bar graphs to demonstrate Rates
of death due to suicide in years, by gender, and by race. This gives me a clear understanding on
how race and age does affect the suicide rates. I will use this to further back up my information
to explain how depression is related to the El Paso community despite depression not being a
huge topic for the city.
