A report by the National Research Council titled “Depression in Parents, Parenting, and Children” stated that untreated, unrecognized parental depression can lead to negative consequences for kids.

It is estimated that at least 15 million children live in households with parents who have major or severe depression. Dr. Beardslee who was on the committee that issued the report explained that problems in children can range from poor school performance to visits to emergency rooms and adolescent depression.

Hello, Internet! Cole here. I’m finishing school as strongly as I can with what little willpower I still have, visiting the gym in my spare time, and generally trying to tune out my constant displeasure with the world. Nothing noteworthy has happened, so I’m going to answer some more silly questions because why not?
