Can I Catch It Like a Cold?: Coping with a Parent's Depression (Coping) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In partnership with the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH), Tundra is proud to launch an important series of books for children who have to cope with adult-sized problems.

Young Alexs father had been a policeman until he began to suffer from depression, perhaps the most common mental health issue we face. Alexs questions are those that are often asked by the children of parents who have depression: is the parent simply lazy? Does he no longer care? And is it something I can catch, like a cold?

In simple, straightforward language, the book explains what depression is and how it is treated. It also prepares a child for working with a helping professional. And perhaps most important, it reassures a child that he or she is not alone.

Written by Canadas foremost experts in the field, this is an important book to spur discussion and allay fears of those affected by depression.

Synopsis:

A look at what it is like for children of depressed parents and show to talk about it with them for better understanding.
