If you suffer from depression you are not alone it affects 15.5 million in the US, and more than 3 million in the UK and, you are much stronger than you think. This best-selling book, written by a leading consultant psychiatrist, explains that people with depression do battle with pressures and stresses that other people would run away from, until their bodies can take no more. In this book, depression is placed authoritatively as a physical illness, from which recovery is possible.

Dr Cantopher provides a comprehensive, accessible overview of depressive illness, guiding the reader through the nature of depression, its history, symptoms, causes and treatments, as well as myths along the way. Warm and supportive, this new edition, which also includes the latest on medications, stresses that sufferers should not blame themselves, but can take hope from the fact that there is meaning in their illness, and that getting better is a real option.

Generously supplied with illuminating anecdotes and insights, it has specific advice on how to read the book if you are currently unwell, as well as valuable information for carers, medical professionals, or anyone interested in this destructive illness which is set to become the second biggest health burden in the world after heart disease.
