Full of solid information and straight
talk, WHEN NOTHING MATTERS ANYMORE defines and explains adolescent
depression, reveals how common it is, describes the symptoms,
and spreads the good news that depression is treatable.
Personal stories, photos, and poetry
from teens dealing with depression speak directly to readers'
feelings, concerns, and experiences.
Teens learn how to recognize depression
in themselves and others, understand its effects, and take care
of themselves by relaxing, exercising, eating right, and talking
things over with people who care.
For some teens, self-help isn't enough, so Bev also tells
about treatment options, presents the facts about therapy, explains
the differences between various types of helping professionals
(psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, physicians, counselors,
etc.), discusses medications, and more.
This book isn't just for teens who
have been diagnosed with depression. It's for any teen
who feels hopeless, helpless, and alone.
Clear, encouraging, and matter-of-fact,
it's also recommended for parents, teachers, and counselors who
want to know more about teen depression.
