A room inside Washington School District schools is showing success in cutting down on classroom disruptions.
This time last year, the Herriman community was in crisis. They sought answers after losing their eighth teenager to suicide in one year. The community knew they needed a long term solution.
More teens and adolescents are suffering from depression and anxiety than ever before. Finding a therapist and getting an appointment right away is extremely difficult. Some therapists in Utah are turning to technology to help teens.
It was last year this busy mom of four boys learned about the 8 second hug... 8 times a day.
Utah children and teens are grappling with intense circumstances surrounding depression, anxiety and even suicide. A Utah psychiatrist hopes to gives adults the tools they need to help.
They knew the warning signs. They talked to their sons. Read their texts and monitored social media. Still, two Utah families say they never saw suicide coming.
Many students feel stressed about Advanced Placement tests, end-of-year tests, SAT tests, college acceptance, internships and a list of other things that pile up at the end of the school year.
Teachers have noted that violent behavior among students has become more prevalent, and it's an indication of the mental health crisis in the state's schools.
