Books for parents, counselors and others concerned with the prevention and treatment of mental disorders in adolescents are now available online in Spanish. The volumes, produced by the Sunnylands Adolescent Mental Health Initiative (AMHI) and published by Oxford University Press, provide concise guides to eating disorders and schizophrenia.
The books offer up-to-date information from noted experts as well as personal stories and advice from parents themselves. English- and Spanish-language versions of the books can be downloaded at no cost from www.CopeCareDeal.org, the AMHI’s mental health website for teens. Forthcoming in the new Spanish-language series are books for parents on depression and bipolar disorder and anxiety disorders, to be added to the online library later this summer.
A project of the Annenberg Foundation Trust at Sunnylands, the Initiative was created to synthesize and disseminate scientific research on the prevention and treatment of mental disorders in adolescents. It has created books and Web materials for scholars and the public on topics including depression, anxiety, substance abuse and suicide prevention.
