More About Adolescent Depression by M.D. Francis Mark Mondimore; M.D. 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?
