Unfortunately, youth can turn to alcohol and other substances to ease life's frustrations, whether it's fitting in or rebelling against authority. There is a serious link between substance use and depression in teens. A panel of experts from the UofM Depression Center will host the Bright Nights Community Forum to discuss the connections between substance use and depression amongst adolescents on Tuesday, March 27, at 7pm. The Ann Arbor District Library will host the event which includes a lecture, question session and discussion.
