    In this article, I will discuss the correlation between school, stress, and mental health, and how school can have a negative impact on students’ health, whether physically or mentally, and no matter what age or grade. The short answer? Yes;...

    • Dear Akari : 
      I am saddened by your post, “The Correlation Between School and Mental Health: Does School Really Cause Depression?” because of the realization that somewhere that is supposed to be “safe” has become a place where students’ well-being is threatened. Students are overwhelmed and under-supported by the education system. 

      One sentence you wrote that stood out to me is, “Bullying is the main reason why teens get school-caused depression, especially in middle and high school”. I think this is alarming because in a place where you are supposed to be “safe”, why do some kids find it necessary to bully others? We are all students of the education system and should be supporting each other and not tearing each other down. 

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because you make a lot of good points. I also feel your writing is very relevant to myself and other students.

    • Dear Akari:

      I am proud of your post, “The Correlation Between School and Mental Health: Does School Really Cause Depression?” because it is uncertain for people to notice a student’s depression. Although, students may be stressed but will act like they are fine. I am glad you pointed out that school depression is an actual thing and can affect many people mentally who experience it. However, I like how you included to talk about school and how school can have a big effect on students sometimes.
      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is, ” Yes; school does cause depression, in one way or another. However, there are many inner reasons, more than just school in general. I’m aware of this personally – from both experiences other people have had and first-hand experience.” I think this is sad because most often we don’t go to school just to come home with stress or depression. But, many students do experience these sort of things, and depression their mental health, and stress can all take a toll on a student’s ability to learn. I think this is great that you decided to bring a topic like this into the light so many can understand that school can cause depression.

      Thanks for writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because you point out a lot of good realizations in your post. I would like you to keep writing about mental illnesses so that people can understand the effects on it for many like adults and even children.
