Everything You Need to Know about Depression (Need to Know Library)by Eleanor H. Ayer
Synopses & Reviews
These attractive educational books address students' questions in areas ranging from health and well-being to responsibility.<P>Depression affects our young people more and more each passing year, especially during adolescence. Ayer explains how and why some teens feel emotionally separated from their environment and are hopeless, helpless, and sometimes suicidal. This book touches upon what separates a reactive depression from a chemical imbalance, what we know about the links between depression and genetics, brain and central nervous system functioning, and the benefits and side effects of modern drug therapies. A brief overview of talk therapy is also given with suggestions on how to find a good therapist.
