Depression: What you really need to know

Depression is a deceptively common illness. At some point in life, one out of every five people will struggle with bouts of depression, and nearly twice as many women will be affected as men. Unfortunately, more than half of the cases of depression are not even diagnosed let alone treated.

This clear, sensitive and thorough book helps people understand their emotional problems, and gives them the hope and direction they need to get the proper treatment. Packed with stories, information and treatment resources, the guide offers clear advice on the difference between normal low moods and depressive disorders. It includes reassuring advice on medications, measured but constructive consideration of complementary remedies, and chapters on depression in the elderly and on depression in teens.
