The AWAKE! NO. 1 for 2017 is all about teen depression. And it was definitely needed.
In a time period where we hear so much about teens & the troubles, dangers & pressure they face at school, teen depression is a serious issue.
Fortunately the organization has loving created this magazine to help teens combat depression! If you haven’t yet, you can read it online at JW.org: Teen Depression
One of the wonderful suggestions that stood out to us was the encouragement for Teens to create an “emotional first aid kit” that would help them to control their thoughts & negative feelings if they become overcome with depression or just feeling down.
Today’s printable is our version of that suggestion! Since it is called a first aid kit, we’ve designed it as if it were an actual first aid kit for a little fun touch!
If you are a teen, you can print it out yourself or if you’re the friend or parent of a teen or know teens in your congregation who would love this you can print it out and give it as a gift to all of them.
