Dr. Paul Jenkins (Family Coach) interviewed with Dr. Gary Nelson, the author of “A Relentless Hope: Surviving the Storm of Teen Depression”. I found this book to be personal and very informative, with a nice conversational tone. His story is based on his years of counseling experience, as well as his personal experiences with his son, Tom. Dr. Nelson’s insights are valuable to those of us who are trying to understand both teens and depression. You can contact Dr. Nelson through his website, survivingteendepression.com.

I read this book and found it extremely informational and and a must read for any parent that is debating whether their child is struggling with depression.
Dr. Gary Nelson is a parent that struggled with his own son. His journey with his son and his family helps you to understand that many of us having difficulties today are not alone. Gary Nelson creates an awareness that many people seem to overlook or simply don’t want to face. If you suspect your teen or pre-teen is suffering with depression, I recommend this book – it can give you a lot of insight.
