This review is from: Undoing Depression: What Therapy Doesn't Teach You and Medication Can't Give You (Kindle Edition)
I have had bouts of major depression throughout my life, and have read all kinds of self help books and the like in order to try to learn how to heal. This is one of the best I've ever come across. It is very comprehensive, going over all the different aspects of depression. It treats it like the complicated thing that it is - there are many different causes for it, and each individual facing depression will have different combinations of symptoms and combined illnesses. It goes over all these things, offering a wide range of treatments. Each person may need to try many things before they find what works for them, but this is a great starting point to see what might work for you. Not only does it depend on the severity of your depression, but whether you also are bipolar, have experienced trauma, have ADHD, have people around to help you, have substance abuse problems, etc. I recommend starting with this book as a great overall guide to help point you in the right direction. Even if you're not sure what will work for you, try the advice in this book and don't give up. There is a light at the end of the tunnel for many of us. I didn't get cured over night but a lot of the things that helped me are in this book.
