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.
