Item description for Stomping Out Depression by Neil T. Anderson & Dave Park...
Overview Most new cases of depression develop between the ages of 15 and 18. It's not just an adult problem---about 4 percent of adolescents are experiencing symptoms right now. Best-selling authors Anderson and Park provide a biblical tool to help teens regain hope and discover that God's love can help them understand and overcome their depression.
Publishers Description Once depression was thought only to be an adult problem. But research clearly indicates that drepression has become common among modern teens and pre-teens. Often teens struggling with depression don't believe that anyone can relate to their circumstances or understand what they are going through. But Jesus knows what it's like to feel rejected, unloved and let down by the people we love. And the Bible tells us that a close walk with Christ will give us a sound mind. Now the Breaker: Youth Edition" show teens how Jesus can change the way they think and the way they live.

Reviews - What do customers think about Stomping Out Depression?
For every Christian teen who struggles with depression Mar 13, 2002
The moment I saw this book, it went into my shopping cart. I was not disappointed. Neil Anderson's insights on Christian identity have been life-changing for me, and this book was full of great, Bible-based, ideas for conquering depression.
I especially loved his balanced viewpoint on treatment for depression. He defines it well as an emotional disorder (with a self-test if you didn't know already you were depressed)and says that the causes are not solely physical, or psychological, or spiritual, but all at once. This isn't another book that tells you to throw your medication in the trash and have more faith-- it explains how you can heal, physically, mentally, and spiritually.
I do, however, have two small gripes. One is that, although it is made clear that healing from depression is often a gradual process, most of the stories in this book involve miraculous and instant turnarounds. Although it is possible, I doubt that is the experience of the majority of believers, and it makes the rest of us who struggle feel left out. The other gripe I have is that for the number of times the Steps to Freedom in Christ are referenced in the book, they really need to be included in the book itself. I found them in The Bondage Breaker Youth Edition, but for those people who pick up this book as their first introduction to Neil Anderson's ministry, they need to be there.
Overall, though, I would recommend this book to pretty much every teen and youth leader out there.
