Has your daughter lost her sparkle? Has everyday life become a trial for your son? As a teacher, do you think that difficult, aggressive 11-year-old boy has other problems and wonder why that 14-year-old girl is so withdrawn?
The problem could be childhood depression, a common but often treatable condition.
Illustrated by cartoons, this book is intended to help parents and teachers of depressed children and teenagers.
Young people themselves will also find it useful. As should school nurses, social workers, health visitors, family doctors and anyone who works with children.
This second edition contains a foreword by multi-award-winning author Philip Pullman.
The aim is to help those involved to recognise the signs of depression in children and to understand the possible causes.
The authors provide practical advice and information about the support and help you can give.
Above all, they show that we can help and that, given the chance, that spark may well return!
