WI Youth Report Shows Ups and Downs

A new state report says adolescents in Wisconsin are reporting more thoughts of suicide and feelings of depression and anxiety. 

The report released Friday by the state’s Office of Children’s Mental Health found that near 34-percent of students said they feel sad and hopeless almost every day.  On the positive side, the report said bullying has decreased slightly, the teen birth rate has dropped, and the number of school social workers, counselors, and psychologists has increased.
