Helping Teens to Avoid Depression |

Graciela Jimenez, Psychotherapist with Care & Counseling, and Amy Exum, Psychotherapist with Care & Counseling at Baptist Health South Florida, agree about how activity can help and improve the adolescent behavior.

Exercise is such a big component to helping with depression, because it improves the mood, helps release endorphins and the chemicals that the body needs, she says.

Also drawing, writing, making puzzles, dancing and singing are good activities to avoid depression, they explain.
