Gem (thornyew5531) I think I'm going to read The Silver Linings Playbook by Matthew Quick

Tat (readandrun) I'm currently reading Every Day by David Levithan which spends at least some time dealing with depression and suicide.

Other books that come to mind:
Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson - deals with depression
Please Ignore Vera Dietz by A.S. King - alcoholism and depression
Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher - depression and suicide
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime by Mark Haddon - autism
