This article, entitled "Blueloon," comes from children's author Julia Cook.
Meet Blueloon – a sad little balloon who is suffering from depression.
With help from the wise rock, Blueloon learns what he can do to “bounce back” to being the way he used to be – bright, round, and full with a very straight string!
Although clinical depression is often thought of as an adult disease, it can also affect children. Unfortunately, children may not have the maturity to understand what is happening to them, or they may feel powerless to change their situation, so they don’t speak up about what they are going through. It is up to adults to be on the lookout for signs of trouble, and recognize when a child needs help.
