Recent surveys indicate that as many as one in five teens suffers from clinical depression, which can lead to substance abuse and suicidal thoughts or actions. Oakton Community College's Skokie campus, 7701 North Lincoln Ave., will host a workshop about teen depression 8:30 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. Friday, Oct. 18.

Designed for teens, parents, and health professionals, "Voice of Depression: The Unique and Honest Perspective of Teens and Their Parents: A Workshop to Share Challenges, Strategies, and Resources," will feature teens and experts in the field of suicide prevention and treatment. Erika's Lighthouse, a nonprofit organization based in Winnetka that raises awareness of adolescent depression and mental health for young people, is sponsoring the seminar.
