Depression by Sue A. Scott-HorneDEPRESSION is EGAR's Award-Winning 'Lets Get Talking' Choice Discussion Card set No.1 and is a part of Series 1A Health of EGAR Games. It is one of ten discussion games in this series and focuses on 'DEPRESSION'. The discussion cards explore young people's understanding of Depression, the causes, affects and feelings you get from it. These discussion cards encourage them to communicate and discuss their knowledge about it. Depression can often trigger deeper rooted problems especially in young people, it is important to cover and discuss areas of this nature, as 'truths' often emerge that may be hidden or covered up. In the light of the cluster of teenage suicides in Wales, depression is more likely to happen in a deprived area. These discussion cards could just highlight and support a young person going through a difficult time, if not it will support young people to have knowledge about the illness.
'As a practitioner, working with children and young people for over 29 years, I have been part of many intervention programmes. One of the many sticking points is how to get children and young people to communicate feelings and ideas that they wholly own, I believe EGAR has now provided an excellent working tool that allows that to happen. Using these games gives children and young people, parents and teachers the opportunity to work together on common themes and values that affects society today. The games are very easy to use, all you have to do is open the box and the conversations begin. It builds self esteem, team work and communication skills. You'll be suprised how easily it creates dialogue, opinions, therefore hope and solutions. I believe EGAR's resources will be a huge aid for anyone working with children and young people today.'
! Entrepenuer Peter Jones 'EGAR produce interactive educational games for young people, which are designed to stimulate structured discussion on vital topics for young people, such as knives, climate change and drugs. This excellent project deserves much wider recognition and I would love to see it made available to all London based Youth Services'. Darren Johnson (Chair of the London Assembly)
