Awarded the book prize for 2012 by the Australasian Journal on Ageing! Even when he’s grey around the muzzle, the black dog of depression can still deliver a ferocious bite. Depression can strike at any age, and it may appear for the first time as we get older, as a result of life circumstances or our genetic makeup. While older people face the same kinds of mental health issues as younger people, they can find it more difficult to deal with them owing to the stressors which accumulate with age. There is also a high incidence of undiagnosed depression in older age, presenting extra challenges for carers. Managing Depression Growing Older offers a systematic guide to identifying depression in older people, supporting them at home or in an aged care setting, and the importance of diet, exercise and attitude in recovery. It is essential reading for anyone who works with the elderly.

From renowned integrative family physician Dr Kenneth Bock, a groundbreaking approach to understanding and treating mental health among adolescents and teens. Over the past decade, the number of 12- to 17-year-olds suffering from mental health disorders has more than doubled. While adolescents and teens are notorious for mood swings and rebellion, parents today are navigating new terrain as their children are increasingly at risk of struggling with a mental health issue. But the question remains: What is causing this epidemic of illness? In Brain Inflamed, acclaimed integrative doctor Dr Kenneth Bock shares a revolutionary new view of adolescent and teen mental health - one that suggests many of the mental disorders most common among this population (including depression, anxiety, and OCD) may share the same underlying mechanism: systemic inflammation. In this groundbreaking work, Dr Bock explains the essential role of the immune system and the microbiome in mental health, detailing the ways in which imbalances in these systems - such as autoimmune conditions, thyroid disorders, or leaky gut syndrome - can generate neurological inflammation. While most conventional doctors assume that teens' psychological struggles can be resolved only with therapy and psychotropic drugs, Dr. Bock's approach considers the whole-body health of his patients. In his integrative evaluations, he often uncovers triggers such as gluten sensitivity, adrenal dysfunction, Lyme disease, and post-strep infections - all of which create imbalances in the body that can generate psychological symptoms. Filled with incredible stories from Dr. Bock's more than thirty years as a practising physician, Brain Inflamed explains the biological underpinnings of many common mental health issues, and empowers the parents and family members of struggling teens with practical advice - and perhaps most importantly, hope for a brighter future.

Teen depression is on the rise in North America. According to the statistics, one teen in every high school classroom is probably suffering from a major depression. These teens come from all social, economic and cultural backgrounds - from anyone's family or community. Parents often agonize over this problem, but do nothing, hoping for the best and allowing the teenager time and space to work out his or her own problems. They try to give extra love, support and attention, but they can't help worrying. Dr. Miriam Kaufman gives the concerned parent a thorough overview of the most up-to-date medical knowledge. Drawing on her own experience and that of other doctors and psychologists who work with teenagers, and offering many illustrative case histories, the author explains what teen depression is and how it can be overcome. Medical and psychiatric conditions, gender and sexuality differences, substance abuse, anxiety, poverty and suicide, as well as the social and practical aspects of life with a depressed teen are discussed. Medical approaches, including therapy and drug treatment, are covered in detail. An entire chapter is dedicated to alternative treatments. And in a broad-ranging question-and-answer section, Dr. Kaufman addresses many of the specific concerns of parents, and of teenagers themselves. This comprehensive look at teen depression is sure to be helpful not only to teens and parents, but to teachers, guidance counselors and all those who work with adolescents.
