For teens who feel unhappy, hopeless, or alone, this book is a light in the darkness. First published in 1998, it has become a classic; a book teens turn to, and teachers and counselors trust. It defines depression, describes the symptoms, and explains that depression is treatable. Personal stories from teens speak directly to readers feelings, concerns, and experiences. Teens learn how to take care of themselves and how treatment can help. The revised and updated edition includes the latest information on medication, nutrition, and health, current resources, and a Q&A with questions teens have asked the author over the years.
