The Book

Depression can be an incredibly debilitating and isolating condition, with episodes recurring throughout a person's life. However, the good news is that with the right guidance it is possible to make a complete recovery. Drawing on a wealth of clinical expertise, the authors have created an easy-to-use manual that explains everything you need to know about the condition, from how to recognise the symptoms to the range of treatments currently available, including behavioural therapies, professional support, and medication. Individuals suffering from depression, as well as those around them, are encouraged to take an active role in getting better and are provided with the vital tools for staying well.
