This book does an excellent job in explaining how depression can look completely different in teens than in adults. Encourages parents to become proactive especially with the lack of help from the medical community and the stigma that is still associated with depression. I loved how the author explains depression as a true disease such as diabetes rather than something that can be switched off by "cheering up". He gives practical advice and shows how parents can be empathetic. I also liked in the end he talks about the gifts left over after depression has been overcome such as the gift of desiring authentic relationships- very true.
