More About Adolescent Depression by Francis Mark Mondimore; Patrick Kelly
 
 
 
Overview

In Adolescent Depression, psychiatrists Francis Mark Mondimore, MD, and Patrick Kelly, MD, explain that serious depression in adolescents goes beyond "moodiness." Depression is in fact an illness--one that can be effectively treated. The authors describe the many forms of depression and the many symptoms of depression in young people--from sadness to irritability, self-harm, drug and alcohol abuse, and violent rages.

Incorporating the latest research from the field of adolescent psychiatry, this comprehensive and compassionate guide answers questions that many parents have, including

- What are the symptoms of depression in teenagers?
- How is depression diagnosed?
- What is the difference between depression and bipolar disorder, and which does my child have?
- How can I find the best mental health professional team for my child?
- What kinds of counseling and psychotherapy are available?
- Are medications safe, and how does a doctor choose a medication for my child?
- What can I do if my adolescent is using alcohol, crystal meth, marijuana, or other substances?
- How do autism and Asperger's syndrome, eating disorders, premenstrual dysphoric disorder, ADHD, and disruptive mood dysregulation disorder interact with depression?
- What should I do if I sense that my child is in danger?
- With all of this going on, how can I take care of myself?
