    One thought on “When Nothing Matters Anymore: A Survival Guide for Depressed Teens”

    1. I wish someone had passed this book on to me when I was a teenager. It breaks depression down in an easy-to-read format so anyone can understand the disease--no confusing medical jargon like most of the depression books I've read. The only thing I wished it had was more personal narrative from Bev.

    2. Okay. I know I read this a long time ago but something needs to be said for this wonderful book. Most of the self-help books for suicidal people don't help. They just don't. They don't do anything, they try to appeal to a part of yourself that isn't there anymore. But this book doesn't. It tells it like it is and it really helped me. It's not one of those crappy "the world is beautiful" books that just make you want to die even more. It's beautiful, and it's helpful, and to me it was life-saving [...]

    3. This was a good book. Even though I'm not depressed, I learned so much. It was very simple and easy to read, which I really enjoyed. This book will be a great resource for a project that I'm working on and for anyone who is actually struggling with depression. I would definitely recommend this book. I especially liked the stories that the teens shared. It kind of reminded me of "Chicken Noodle Soup for the Teenage Soul."

    4. A handy resource as an educator, however, I'm a bit surprised that this "updated & revised" version from 2009 is still directing teens to look up the numbers for crisis hotlines in the Yellow Pages.

    5. Good resource for teens and parents. Good explanations about depression, symptoms, coping with, treatment. I like the stories teens shared about their experience and the "conversation starters" to help teens broaching sensitive topics.

    6. Note, claiming that you are a distant cousin of the late-great Kurt does not make you an educated writer! This worthless person is just piggybacking Kurt's success. She's condescending and all her info can be found in a basic middle school textbook. WORTHLESS!

    7. some of the personal narratives may be helpful to read with teens who are struggling with depression.otherwise it's a fairly basic read,from which i can pull out content here and there to be shared with some who may find the format useful.

    8. Straightforward and filled with helpful informationExcellent resource for parents and teens. Filled with good information and advice. Written in plain language for the non-medical professional to understand.

    9. This book definitely helps improve understanding of depression and it does give you some tips to dealing with depression it's a good book and it's an easy read (:
