According to Mental Health America, 15.08% of our youth have reported from suffering from at least one major depressive episode (MDE) in the last year.

Childhood depression is more likely to continue into adulthood if gone untreated.

The number of children experiencing MDE increased by 306,000 from last year’s data.

Kids learning meditation, mindfulness and deep breathing at a young age has shown to decrease depressive disorders as well as increase compassion, empathy and improve attention.

In addition, studies at Harvard Medical School have shown that a simple meditation practice adopted by kids at an early age is just as effective as medication.

Scientists in one study proved that meditation adopted at a young age was just as effective managing anxiety and depression as antidepressants.
