Discusses the fact that when girls hit puberty, they start to experience higher rates of depression than do boys, and this sex difference continues until women hit menopause. Aims to educate not only health care providers treating young women for depression but also teachers, therapists, youth workers, researchers, and others. Includes a section of stories by girls called "In their words—young women’s stories, advice and wisdom".
