Help teenagers recognize and deal with the “black dog” by explaining the causes and symptoms of depression, telling how and where to find help, and providing information on forward-looking treatments tailored for teens. Australian rock musician Daniel Johns and young adults from both urban and rural areas in Australia discuss their experiences with depression. In addition, Jeff Kennett, director of beyondblue—Australia’s national depression-awareness initiative—and other mental health professionals add informative and supportive commentary.
