A practical, positive companion for anyone affected by depression.

At any time, one in twenty people suffers from severe, clinical depression. If you or someone close to you may be one of them, this is book will be your perfect companion through your depression.

No book can claim to 'cure' depression, which is a serious illness for which people should seek medical help. What this book does is demystify the illness, help remind you that you're not alone, provide moving case studies of people who have been in similar situations, and talk you through some practical things you can do to alleviate the effects of depression. It also explains the key treatments, including medication, cognitive behavioural therapy, and alternative therapies.
