This YouTube video uploaded by Armando Hasudungan  on October 9, 2013 talks about mental health and not only gives a basic explanation of what mental illness is or is not, but also talks a little about stigma and how to work to decrease it.  The video gives statistics specific to Australia, but from what I know about statistics here in America, the numbers are very similar.  The Overall message of this video is worth checking out though if you have just under just under 3 minutes to spare.

This October 25, 2013 article on the Philly.com website  talks about recent research that seems to show an increase in the diagnosis of depression among kids and teens who have had head injury. Researchers are unclear though if the brain injury caused the depression or if symptoms of depression may have been a factor into the cause of the injury.  It does seem though that teens with a brain injury seem to be between 2 and 4 times more likely to be diagnosed with depression as compared to the overall national average according to the article.
