Overview

Clinical depression is a common problem for teenagers as well as adults; surveys suggest one in eight teens will struggle with depression in a given year. Although many people think of depression as a "modern" illness, the disorder has afflicted men, women, and children for thousands of years.

By studying the history of this mind-body illness, readers can learn what depression is, and how doctors and scientists have developed treatments. While primarily historical, The History of Depression includes valuable and relevant information about today's treatments, including cognitive therapy, antidepressant medications, and "natural" treatments. While this book is not a substitute for professional medical advice, it gives students and parents solid information about a vital health topic.
