“It feels like everyone is picking on me.”
“Some of my friends are drinking and getting high.”
“I hate my life.  I feel lonely, misunderstood, and angry.”
 “I’ve been thinking about suicide.”

“One in ten young students struggle with a serious problem with depression or drug abuse.  Adults who care may be the last to know. ReDiscover helps identify and intervene at early points in emotional disturbances by helping develop comprehensive strategies for resolving these issues with parents, teachers, counselors, and students. ReDiscover is dedicated to the development of school-based mental health programs that are non-stigmatizing and easily accessible to children and their families in the school environment."
