Teen Clubs of Erika’s Lighthouse have formed in schools and universities throughout the Chicagoland area where trained club members provide peer-to-peer panel programming about depression and mental health. Teen Club members speak to their classmates about depression, the warning signs to look for, and how to get help for their peers. The goals of an Erika’s Lighthouse Teen Club is not just to educate their classmates about depression, but also to help break the stigma associated with depression and to develop a culture of good mental health in schools so that teens who suffer from depression can get the help they need.
