The authors describe the many forms of depression and the many symptoms of depression in young people—from sadness to irritability, self-harm, drug and alcohol abuse, and violent rages.

Incorporating the latest research from the field of adolescent psychiatry, this comprehensive and compassionate guide answers questions that many parents have, including

· What are the symptoms of depression in teenagers? · How is depression diagnosed?· What is the difference between depression and bipolar disorder, and which does my child have? · How can I find the best mental health professional team for my child? · What kinds of counseling and psychotherapy are available? · Are medications safe, and how does a doctor choose a medication for my child?· What can I do if my adolescent is using alcohol, crystal meth, marijuana, or other substances?· How do autism and Asperger’s syndrome, eating disorders, premenstrual dysphoric disorder, ADHD, and disruptive mood dysregulation disorder interact with depression? · What should I do if I sense that my child is in danger? · With all of this going on, how can I take care of myself?
