What Is Depression? (Library Binding)
Everyone experiences sadness at some point in their life, but not everyone experiences depression. Depression is extreme sadness and feeling discouragement, despair, or hopelessness from weeks to years at a time. People who experience depression often don't take enjoyment from life and don't have much energy, motivation, or concentration. With this volume, readers will learn what causes depression, steps to a diagnosis, and different types of treatments. They'll also learn that it's OK not to be OK, and that it's important to talk about feelings with people who are available to help.
