“Readers looking for help for themselves or a friend will find that this slim volume is chock-full of easy-to-implement ideas for those living with depression.”—School Library Journal

Teens get a great deal of information and guidance on many things from study skills to college admissions to test taking…and the list goes on. But many teens get no direct instruction about how to manage difficult emotions. This lack of direction can be hard because teens are at an age vulnerable to depression. While people often use the word "depression" to describe a momentary mood, the same term is also used to label a more serious and long-lasting problem that can interfere with many aspects of a person’s life. It's that second definition that is the focus of this book.

Depression: A Teen’s Guide to Survive and Thrive is a guidebook for teenagers who are depressed or at risk for depression. This guide discusses depression and provides guidance on cognitive—behavioral therapy principles to help teens take a problem-solving, strategy-based approach to deal with depressed moods, thoughts, and behavior. Intended to serve as an adjunct to therapy, this is a very practical and easy-to-read book that is not overwhelming for teens.
