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.
