Youth with depression struggle with many aspects of daily living, including family and friend relationships, school, and daily self-care. In the long-term, successful treatment requires addressing not just the depressive symptoms but also these associated problems. Parents are a good resource to help youth with depression address these problems but may have difficulty overcoming the irritability, lack of motivation, and social withdrawal that accompany teenage depression.

Helping Your Teenager Beat Depression: A Problem-Solving Approach for Families is written for parents who feel that their teenager might have or be at risk for depression. The book emphasizes the important role that parents can play in providing support and helping their teens to overcome the problems that are associated with depression.
