Depression affects many people, and it can be confusing and sometimes scary for a young person to see a family member or friend suffering from it, or to find themselves struggling with symptoms of depression. However, knowing the facts about this mental illness can empower them to provide support for others and to take charge of their own health. They discover these facts through age-appropriate text and sidebars that provide scientific information, relatable examples, and advice. Graphic organizers, diagrams, and full-color photographs work with the text to give readers an empathetic and educational overview of this important mental health topic.
