Review

"…a guide for parents, a book long overdue and one which will be of enormous help…is especially valuable…" (Familyonwards.com, 19 February 2004)

"...concise ...useful to anyone working with children and young people experiencing depression..." (Child Right, May 2004)

“The strength of the book lies in it accessible style and numerous practical suggestions.” (Child and Adolescent Mental Health, Vol.10, No.2, May 2005)

From the Back Cover

Knowing how to deal with a teenager in emotional turmoil is a daunting task for any parent.

Coping with Depression in Young People: A Guide for Parents describes the normal steps parents go through in coming to terms with depression in their children, from first noticing something is wrong, to accessing the best professional treatment, to surviving what can be a very emotional time for the whole family.

Carol Fitzpatrick and John Sharry, both experts in this field, deal with issues most parents find particularly worrying, such as drug and alcohol use, suicide and self-harm, and other mental health problems. Parents reading this book will find guidance on what help and treatments are available for their child, as well as what they can do themselves to help the whole family cope.

'This guide tells parents in plain language what depression is, how to recognize it, and what can be done about it. Clinicians should routinely recommend that parents read this excellent book.'
Professor Alan Carr, University College Dublin
