Full Description

One out of every five of us struggles with bouts of depression at some time in our life, whilst nearly twice as many women are affected as men. Yet, more than half of all depressions are not even diagnosed let alone treated. Depression is clearly an illness that is more common than we think. At the outset, depression can seem similar to the sadness or low mood that we all feel from time to time. As the illness progresses, however, work life, social life and intimate relationships all suffer. So, how do we tell the difference between simply being down and being clinically depressed? And how can we find our way through, and eventually out of, the terrible fog that descends on those who suffer it? This thorough guide offers a helping hand to those who want better to understand their emotional problems as well as the hope and direction they may need to seek and obtain proper treatment for themselves. Full of stories, information and treatment resources, here is clear, non-judgmental advice on the difference between normal low moods and depressive disorders. Plus vital reassurance and useful tips on medications, a look at complementary or alternative remedies, and a section on depression in both later life, for the elderly, and for the young, especially the early vulnerable teenage years.
