What is depression, and what can we do about it? Why all the fuss about antidepressants - and is medication the only answer? Depression tends to be something we keep to ourselves.

Yet it is estimated that one in four adults is affected at some time in their lives.

In DEALING WITH DEPRESSION, respected expert Dr Caroline Shreeve answers all your questions, describes how to recognise the symptoms, and discusses the physical and psychological causes of depression.

You can also learn to arm yourself against depression with Dr Shreeve's highly effective, personalised self-help programme, Discover: What depression really is, and why it strikes; how counselling and psychotherapy can help; how antidepressants can work wonders, and when to take them; how complementary therapies and yoga can help mind and body; techniques for coping and relaxing; advice for familes and work colleagues; and much more.

Review by

A general summary of all the many different methods for tackling depression, including ADs, talking strategies, physical therapies, self-help methods and relaxation techniques. Nothing goundbreaking, but a useful summary. I have decided to call my depression "Pruneface" to cut it down to size and I have made enquiries into taking up Tai Chi.
