Summary
From the Publisher: In a straightforward and nonjudgmental manner, The Truth About series tackles a range of current issues that affect teens. Each A-to-Z volume delivers the information teens need to cope with pressure from a multitude of sources and to make informed choices when faced with difficult decisions. Special features such as "Q & A," "Teens Speak," and "Fact Or Fiction?" focus on critical aspects of current topics, while "Did You Know?" presents up-to-date tables and graphs. With an informative glossary and a valuable listing of hotlines and further resources, these books are essential reading for young people in search of guidance and knowledge. An estimated 26 percent of Americans age 18 and over-or one in four people in the United States-experience some type of mental disorder each year, according to the National Institute on Mental Health. The Truth About Anxiety and Depression, Second Edition presents the most up-to-date information on anxiety and depression, including the genetics of mood and anxiety disorders, gender and depression, types of treatments available, related disorders, and much more
