About this product
- DescriptionOne in five teenagers in Australia will experience major depression before they are 18 years of age and the chance of a child developing depression has tripled in the past 30 years. Depression is also particularly prevalent in girls; staggeringly, over 340,000 prescriptions of antidepressants were written for young people under 18 in 2005. This book describes the factors contributing to this increasing depression in young people and why our search for constant happiness is setting our children up for problems. It is important for all parents to kw that, contrary to popular myth, depression can be prevented and treated. An invaluable contact list of mental health organisations, support groups and websites where parents and carers can seek further help is also included. This book is a much-needed practical, clear and highly accessible guide to identify and help depressed teens.
