Publisher's Summary

Don't let the subtitle fool you: The Anti-Depressant Book is useful for teens AND adults who are struggling with depression. It offers a drug-free, step-by-step solution to feeling happier quickly and developing healthy habits that will prevent relapse. 
This book covers the basics of cognitive behavioral therapy for emerging from depression and staying well. It is filled with paradox, written as if Dr. Towery were having a conversation directly with you, and is neither preachy nor dry. There are also brief sections for parents who are struggling with a depressed child. 
The book was written as a response to the suicide clusters in Palo Alto to help prevent as many suicides as possible. The Anti-Depressant Book can be used as an adjunct to traditional therapy or by itself, particularly for those with mild to moderate depression. It is irreverent, fun to listen to, and practical. The book is written in a straightforward, conversational style that works particularly well for teenagers and young adults, but adults who follow all the steps will also see dramatic improvement in their moods and lives. 
Author's note: This audiobook is NOT intended as a stand-alone product. It is intended to be used IN ADDITION to the print or Kindle version of the book to make it easier to comprehend. If you struggle with dyslexia, learning differences, or reading in general, this was made so that you could listen to the book WHILE reading the print version. I hope you enjoy it and find it helpful!

Invaluable for ANY teenager. It is a life-changer!

Where does The Anti-Depressant Book rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Dr. Towery recorded his book to accompany the print and Kindle versions. It is not a "stand-alone" listen, but an aid to make it easier for teens to work with a written version. The material in this book is INVALUABLE. It is a guide for any teen (or person) who wants to feel better. My daughter was suffering from anxiety and depression so severe that she was unable to attend school for over a year. After reading this book, following the guidelines and then working with Dr. Towery in person, she has her life back and is thriving. Dr. Towery is not a clinician, he is a healer. Her recovery still feels like a miracle. Now when any feelings of anxiety or depression arise, this book is a guide to help her work through it. For any teenager who is struggling, they can look through the table of contents and see the areas they can work on. Most teens are exhausted and stressed out, whether or not they are suffering from depression. This book confronts all of the things we know to make life more difficult for teens (lack of sleep, not enough exercise, poor nutrition, overusing electronics, etc.) and provides the guidelines to follow if they are determined to feel better. It also provides positive things to add to their lives that are proven to uplift mood. It is a toolkit that every teenager and parent of a teenager should have.
