Centre for Suicide Prevention - Jackie Stinton
"Portrays constructive steps to great emotional well-being . . . a useful, practical, and teen-respecting book."

"Useful, practical and teen-respecting book on teenage depression, beneficial for the mild to moderately depressed teen, for parents wanting to understand teen depression, and as an adjunct to professional counseling. Facilitating and encouraging the emotional wellbeing of a young person caught in depression is an endeavour we all need to be invested in. This book will help in that investment."

Meet the Author

Stuart Copans, M.D., is a husband, father, child psychiatrist, cartoonist, writer, speaker, book illustrator, paper cutter, bookplate designer, mail artist, book artist, swimmer, and canoe paddler (not always in that order). His children have all survived his parenting mistakes, for which he is grateful to them and to some undefined higher power. He enjoys collaborating with others and hopes they enjoy collaborating with him but always feels as if he's the lucky one in any collaboration. Dr. Copans graduated magna cum laude from Harvard University and received his medical degree from Stanford Medical School. He has researched parent-child interactions for the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development and has worked with adolescents in both inpatient and outpatient settings for nearly 30 years. He is on the faculty of Dartmouth Medical School and the University of Massachusetts Medical School and is board certified in child and adolescent psychiatry. Dr. Copans likes to write books that teach through humor or that help people deal with problems. His books include Who's the Patient Here?: Portraits of the Young Psychotherapist, co-authored with Thomas Singer; How to Avoid the Evil Eye by Brenda Rosenbaum; Smart Moves: Your Guide Through the Emotional Maze of Relocation, co-authored with Audrey McCollum and Nadia Jensen; Twelve Jewish Steps to Recovery: A Personal Guide to Turning from Alcoholism and Other Addictions, co-authored with Rabbi Kerry Olitzky; The Healing Journey: Your Journal of Self-Discovery, co-authored with Phil Rich; The Healing Journey for Couples: Your Journal of Mutual Discovery, co-authored with Phil Rich; The Healing Journey Through Addiction: Your Journal for Recovery and Self-Renewal, co-authored with Phil Rich; and The Healing Journey Through Job Loss: Your Journal for Reflection and Revitalization, co-authored with Phil Rich and Kenneth G. Copans.

Mary Ellen Copeland, M.A., M.S., is a mental health educator. She has worked with adults and young people all over the world, teaching them how to recover from troubling conditions such as depression and how to stay well. She has also worked as a teacher, founding and directing a school for teens with special needs. She believes that if teens understand how they feel and know how to help themselves feel well, they will be happier and better able to do the things they want to do. She received her master's degree in counseling psychology from Vermont College of Norwich University and her master's degree in resource management and administration from Antioch New England Graduate School. She is the author of The Depression Workbook: A Guide for Living with Depression and Manic Depression; Living Without Depression and Manic Depression: A Workbook for Maintaining Mood Stability; Wellness Recovery Action Plan; Winning Against Relapse: A Workbook of Action Plans for Recurring Health and Emotional Problems; The Worry Control Workbook; The Loneliness Workbook: A Guide to Developing and Maintaining Lasting Connections; and Healing the Trauma of Abuse: A Women's Workbook, co-authored with Maxine Harris.
