ADOLESCENT IN STRESS, DEPRESSION, AND VIOLENCE, a new book by Gertrude Okon Bassey, SFCC, Ph.D/MD, MSN-ED, APN, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

In our contemporary society, teen violence is a growing epidemic. Crime rates and violence among teenagers appear to be on the rise. The mixture of adolescence, school bullying, and depression is explosive. Young people also face changing relationships with peers, new demands at school, family tensions, and safety issues in their communities. ADOLESCENT IN STRESS, DEPRESSION, AND VIOLENCE aims to shed a light on and educate the reader about the dangerous and significant consequences that these stressors can have on our youths' physical and emotional health. Without help, difficulties in handling stress can lead to mental health problems for adolescents, such as depression and anxiety disorders.
