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?
