Parent Handbook on Depression in Children and Adolescents


Handbook-coverHere is a great resource from Erika’s Lighthouse, a Chicago-area-based organization dedicated to raising awareness about mental health and depression. The Parent Handbook on Childhood and Adolescent Depression is a 66-page document that covers a range of issues for parents and teens. Topics include facts about depression, how to get help, issues of living with depression at home and at school, and various treatment options. It is a good read and very useful for understanding what adolescents and young adults face when dealing with depression.
