How is depression diagnosed? What are the symptoms? How is it treated? How is it prevented?
Depression is one of the most widespread diseases in the world. People with depression feel a clear and concrete unhappiness, a loss of the meaning of life, high stress, fatigue, discomfort with themselves, and a high level of hopelessness.
One of the most serious consequences is suicide, which is the third leading cause of death among adolescents and young adults in Mexico. People who commit suicide are depressed, although fortunately, not all depressed people attempt suicide.

HOW TO PREVENT AND TEACH GOOD HABITS
Do you know what risks your children are exposed to? Currently, both young people and adults face dangerous situations that can significantly change their lives. However, there are prevention strategies that start in childhood. The decisions our children make are based on what we talk to them about, what they see in us, and how we teach them to face life.

Have you ever wondered if your love for your child is truly unconditional? If they told you, "Mom, I'm gay," what would you feel and how would you react? 83% of parents who have gone through this revelation report having been shocked by the news. Being honest, would you behave differently? How about if your child was invited to a house of a same-sex family, would you feel uncomfortable? There are few parents who openly accept it, and in fact, studies show that a large percentage of parents fear these situations.
The attitudes, words, and messages we send as parents have a great impact on the development of our children. The looks we cast, whether negative or positive, have a profound effect on the child's self-concept and self-esteem, and also upon the way in which they develop in their environment. In this talk, we will talk about the importance of family, respect, acceptance of our children, and the different types of families that exist today. We will reflect upon some social beliefs and prejudices; we will analyse with you why it is that we fear things that we perceive to be different. Finally, we will talk about the importance of our role as parents in the mental health of our children. An informed community is a respectful and safe tribe for everyone.
