You Are Not Alone is an illuminating exposition on the inner dynamics of young people who are journeying through life challenges in a rapidly changing world of stressful situations rarely encountered a generation ago. While coping skills need to be re-examined, the ultimate goal in battling anxiety for these young people is not freedom from pain but a worthy, meaningful journey to adulthood. This appealing guidebook for parents, teachers and caregivers help give insight into adolescent depression and how to intervene to prevent the worst possible outcomes.
