Summary

Annotation. Adolescence and young adulthood is a significant transition period in a person's life in many ways. Young people may experience challenges including a range of mental and behavioural disorders, anxiety-related conditions, depression, substance use, self-harm and suicidal behaviours. What is good mental health, and how can young people be encouraged to seek help if they are struggling? This book looks at the prevalence of mental health problems for young Australians and offers general advice on how to maintain good mental health. Tips include advice for parents and friends on how to help someone with a mood disorder, as well as options for mental health assessment, treatments and therapies for teenagers who are not coping as well as they would like. A key focus of the book is selfharm and suicidal behaviours, revealing the latest approaches to reducing youth suicide. Learn how to watch out for the warning signs, work on your mental wellbeing, and banish the blues.
