School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up-Statistically, the chances of each succeeding generation suffering from depression increases for as yet unknown reasons. Hyde and Forsyth provide teens with some of the basic facts they'll need to deal with their own or a loved one's depression, and offer details about some famous individuals who suffered from the disease. Thoughtful advice about talking to a depressed friend, suggestions for making decisions about medication, and a list of Web sites and organizations come together with important information about suicidal thoughts. The boxes that list symptoms of major depression, mania, and dysthymia will be helpful to both report writers and those personally interested in the topic. This book belongs in all young adult collections.-Lynn Evarts, Sauk Prairie High School, Prairie du Sac, WI Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
