As technology advances, so must our methods of reaching out to youth, especially when it comes to teenage depression support. While there are organizations like Kid Help Phone, there are also apps like Code Blue that are easily accessible to young people suffering with mental illness. Designed to act like a panic button, the app enables teens to reach out when they need help.

Whether it's the result of cyberbullying, problems at home or a bigger mental health issue, depression is a problem many youth face today. By offering teenage depression support, Code Blue allows teens to save the contact information of loved ones who know about their feelings so they can be easily notified in particularly low or even suicidal moments. The alert system can also include GPS location.
