Major depressive disorder is caused by a combination of brain chemistry, family history, distorted thinking, and a person’s emotional environment, according to most experts. Depression affects as many as one in eight teens, yet many young people with depression don't receive the help they need. With medication and therapy, depression can be treated and controlled.

Written in clear, straightforward language, Living with Depression examines this disease and provides teens with the information they need to understand the nature of depression and its treatments. Sidebars, appendixes, and further reading guide additional exploration of this timely topic. This accessible guide is ideal for readers living with depression or those who have family members or friends who are coping with it.
