Depression in teens

My Kind of Sad: What It's Like to Be Young and Depressed
by Kate Scowen

A useful book that helps in the understanding of depression - what it is and how it manifests itself (e.g. anxiety, anorexia, cutting). It describes how everyday concerns affect your mood, lists the warning signs associated with depression and how to tell the difference between simply feeling blue to something more serious. Each topic features thoughts from teens who have experienced or are experiencing depression and advice on how to get help for yourself or a friend.
