The Anxious Teenager: Guiding teens through anxiety, depression and the universal addiction to faster living by Danielle Harris
2.8 million teenagers have had at least one major depressive episode in their lives. Is your child one of them?
Have you noticed that your kid is always angry or frustrated, even over small matters?
Have they lost interest or stopped making an effort to communicate with you or their friends?
Are they tired all the time, yet insomniac and always agitated and restless?
