A. (2017, October 06). Study links early school start time to depression in teens.

A study in the journal Sleep Health found an association between good baseline sleep habits and fewer symptoms of depression or anxiety among teens, but those who began school before 8:30 a.m. had increased symptoms than those who began school after 8:30 a.m. The findings were based on data involving 197 high-school students ages 14 to 17.
