Synopsis

Depression The Ultimate Teen Guide by Tina P. Schwartz

Nearly one in six people will develop major depression, and teens are just as susceptible as adults-if not more so. Serious depression afflicts more than two million teenagers each year in the United States alone, but it can often be difficult for teens to recognize their ailment and get help. Clearly, teens with depression are not alone, and it is important that they realize the condition does not have to be forever but is something they can work toward overcoming. In Depression: The Ultimate Teen Guide, Tina P. Schwartz helps teens and young adults learn how to deal with this often debilitating affliction. Throughout the book, teens tell their personal stories of living with depression and other mood disorders, describe what treatments were successful and what were not, and share how they are coping today. Topics covered in this book include *warning signs and symptoms *internal and external triggers *coping mechanisms *stigmas of mental health issues *preserving relationships *helping a sibling, parent, or friend who suffers from depression Aimed to support teens and young adults who might otherwise feel helpless and hopeless about their situation, Depression: The Ultimate Teen Guide is a valuable resource. This book will benefit not only teens dealing with depression but also their family and friends.

What is depression? What are the symptoms? Who 'gets

? Can it be cured? Schwartz, herself a sufferer, begins by answering the first two questions. From this general definition and overview, she follows with a more detailed discussion of the types of depression and other mood disorders. She then discusses coping mechanisms (unhealthy and healthy), approaches to controlling depression, and places and organizations that offer help. Writing directly to teens and young adults in second person, she attempts to engage with their questions and concerns...Chapter notes are thorough and extensive. Booklist
