Product description

Review

This book will save lives, which can't be said of many. Writing or reading a letter strikes at the sense of isolation which is at the root of despair. Read this book, buy it for others, it's rare and powerful medication. --Gwyneth Lewis, author of Sunbathing in the Rain: A Cheerful Book about Depression

Review

This book contains messages of hope from the dark side, an antidote of rational belief to fight the lack of faith all depressives feel. The Recovery Letters, I have no doubt, has the power to save lives. (Tim Lott, journalist and author)

Writing or reading a letter strikes at the sense of isolation which is at the root of despair. Read this book, buy it for others, it's rare and powerful medication. (Gwyneth Lewis, author of Sunbathing in the Rain: A Cheerful Book about Depression)

These letters are full of friendship and intimacy. It is possible to mend your way out of depression, and, believe me, you'll be all the better for it: more thoughtful, more receptive, and more at peace. (Dr Neel Burton, author of Growing from Depression)

I found the letters so helpful when I was ill; one of the few things that reached me across the void. (Charlotte Garrett, Research Psychologist)

Powerful letters from people who've been there who know from experience that you won't always feel this way. Just one letter that really speaks to you could make a difference. (Claudia Hammond, broadcaster and writer)

Moving, beautiful in places and valuable: in a world in which effective treatment for the mentally ill remains as elusive as ever, this book has something rather important to offer. More than anything, the depression sufferer wants reassurance that recovery is possible. These letters from fellow travellers show that it is not just possible, but probable, that you are not alone, that others have been here, survived, recovered, and rejoined their lives. Their message: you can do the same. (Mark Rice-Oxley, author of Underneath the Lemon Tree: A Memoir of Depression and Recovery)

The people writing these letters describe depression in a way that only survivors can. The words are authentic and will give hope and encouragement to those who read them. (Douglas Bloch M.A., author of Healing From Depression: 12 Weeks to a Better Mood)
