Our handbook offers tips on how to get help, things parents might want to know about childhood and teen depression and treatment, and ideas for good mental health. Book excerpts: Welcome to the Erika's Lighthouse Parent Handbook on Childhood and Teen Depression, Second Edition. You may be listening to our handbook because you think your child is depressed and you want to know what to do. We are here to help you. You are not alone. Somewhere between 15% and 20% of our children and teens will suffer from at least one depressive episode before they reach adulthood. These episodes come in many forms - ranging from the child who doesn't want to go to school to the teen who is constantly in a rage to the withdrawn child who barely speaks.

We hope this handbook will be a helpful guide to you as you deal with the many issues you will likely confront over the course of your child's depression. We know this is probably a frightening time. You may feel helpless and alone. We invite you to listen to our handbook with the hope that it will give you both some comfort and some answers.

On August 20, 2015, after enduring years of intense workplace stress, bullying, and harassment, Tracey Maxfield, a hard-working, highly skilled, caring, and compassionate nurse, hurtled headfirst down into an abyss of darkness, despair, pain, and sorrow (she affectionately named, the rabbit hole). Despite being no stranger to depression, having made its acquaintance many times throughout the years, nothing could have prepared her for what was about to happen to her life, her heart, her soul, her very being. Escaping the Rabbit Hole: My Journey Through Depression is a brutally honest, raw, and vivid description of what life is like after experiencing an acute depressive episode. Through a series of blog posts, journal entries, and a letter to self, Tracey shares the excruciating emotional and physical pain she endured, the never-ending feelings of hopelessness, worthlessness, and sadness which left her inert and unable to function, and her ongoing battle against DBS (death by suicide). Every single day, she had to make a choice: to fight the battle to live, or to surrender and die. She chose to live, and so began her most difficult and challenging life journey yet: to try and escape the rabbit hole. This book is a must hear for anyone living with depression or caring for someone with depression, and for anyone who wants to know more about this greatly misunderstood mental health illness. Tracey tells us that words can be powerful and healing, and with time, it is possible to emerge from the rabbit hole of darkness and despair and reclaim your life. This is a story of courage, of hope, and of never giving up. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tracey Maxfield. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/118553/bk_acx0_118553_sample.mp3.
