My daughter (11) is suffering from Major Depressive Disorder and Severe Anxiety and is hospitalized. This story, although hard to read, made me feel not so alone and also reinforced to me that I have to be my daughter's advocate - always. It is also a story of hope - and I sure need that.
We are just trying to understand the devastating impact on ourselves, our family and our life due to our 11 year old daughter's severe depression. It is hard to find books about the parent's experience in these situations. This honoured my feelings of grief and despair and gave me some ways to move forward.
