There is growing community awareness that depression can have a deleterious impact on the lives of young people, but compelling accounts in the literature by those affected are rare.

This is a brave, candid and beautifully written description of the effect of depression that will be of enormous educational value for sufferers, their family and health professionals.

The book also serves to provide much needed hope that, with appropriate treatment and support, the outcome can be very positive.
