A practical guide to understanding and coping with depression.
A practical, four step programme to help you understand and cope with depression.
As many as 1 in 4 British people have depression at any one time, and despite being so prevalent in our lives and communities, there is still lingering reluctance to talk about depression and its effects. In Depression: A practical guide, Dr Barry is determined to break the silence and provide practical advice to those suffering from depression as well as their families and friends.
Dr Barry reveals a simple, four step programme to deal with depression, from beginning the journey, how to feel better, how to get better and how to stay well. He explores holistic approaches involving lifestyle as well as drug therapy, talk therapy (particularly CBT) and mindfulness.
Previously published as Flagging Depression, this edition has been fully revised and updated.
This is not just a book about depression
or one which enhances knowledge about the topic; it is a practical
guide to understanding and managing this complex area of mental
distress. It is skillfully written in a caring, meaningful and supportive
style, which reveals the significant professional background of Dr
Barry in this field.

would be this.
