CULTURE OF SILENCE

There is a stigma around depression in Latina, Asian and African American Cultures. No one wants to talk about it, much less get help.

In fact, the highest rate of teen suicide attempts among teenagers nationwide is among Latina girls. GlobalGirls in Los Angeles investigate why through brave and insightful interviews with two of their friends who have struggled with depression. This is part of the #LISTENOUTLOUD series produced by GlobalGirl Media.

GlobalGirl Media is dedicated to empowering high school age girls from under-served communities around the world through media, leadership and journalistic training to have a voice in the global media universe and their own futures.

@simonhally But if you stay silent, how does anyone know you need help? Depression is a very lonely and isolated place..
