Help Me, Im Sad: Recognizing, Treating, and Preventing Childhood and Adolescent Depression by David G. Fassler, Lynne Dumas

?One time I was so sad I wished I would go to sleep and not wake up.? Seven-year-old Dana is just one example, in this wise and enlightening book, of a child with a disease that did not officially exist until 1980. Today, the National Institute of Mental Health estimates that 2.5% of all youngsters under eighteen have crossed the line between normal sadness and clinical depression?at earlier and earlier ages. Moreover, research shows that such childhood depression is highly predictive of adult problems.?Help Me, I?m Sad? explains with wisdom and empathy how parents can play a vital role in helping a child overcome, and often prevent, depression. It discusses how to tell if your child is at risk; how to spot symptoms; depression?s link with other problems and its impact on the family; teen suicide; finding the right diagnosis, therapist, and treatment; and what you can do to help. Above all, it reveals how to avoid depression by building a child?s emotional adaptability. For parents who have?or suspect they may have?depressed children, here is a mine of practical, easy-to-understand information.
