Talking to your child about depression

It is common for children, especially those going through puberty, to deal with at least a little bit of depression. How will you talk to your children about depression?

This can be a very uncomfortable topic to try to cover with them. I have told my kids that it's normal to be sad sometimes for no reason. But if it lasts and/or feels like something they just can't handle to talk to me.

How do you plan to tackle this topic, or will you just wait and see if you need to?
