The teenage years are a time of exploration and change. These years can be challenging-even more so when a young person has a mental condition or illness. Eating Disorders, Phobias, and OCD are among the mental disorders discussed in the Teen Mental Health series. Every book explains what the illness is, what causes it, how it affects daily life, possible treatments, and how people overcome it or learn to live with it.
