About our Trainings: 

Developed at Boston Children’s Hospital, Break Free from Depression is a curriculum designed to increase adolescents’ awareness about depression, teach them how to recognize it in themselves and in their friends, and give them strategies for finding help. The 4-session curriculum for high school students features a compelling documentary that focuses on a diverse group of adolescents talking about their struggles with depression and suicide. We learn of their symptoms, the course of their illness, and the methods they use for coping through their own words.

Boston Children's Hospital Neighborhood Partnerships holds free trainings each year designed to introduce participants to the Break Free from Depression curriculum and be trained on how to facilitate it in their school setting. Participants will also learn about adolescent depression and suicide as a public health concern and how to identify warning signs in their students. Upon completion of the training, participants receive a copy of the curriculum as well as follow up consultation and support.

Starting this year our trainings will be offered as a webinar series. The series will be held on two consecutive afternoons and participants will have to attend both sessions to receive a copy of the curriculum. 

This training is tailored towards high school personnel and/or community health providers partnered with high schools who are focused on health services such as social workers, psychologists, guidance counselors, pupil adjustment counselors, school nurses, other mental health professionals, health teachers, and other staff.
