Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Imagine being slowly lowered into a cave, against your will. The light fades, and the rock walls close in. You find yourself alone in complete darkness, lost, distressed, agitated, and maybe suicidal. This is the experience of depression. Imagine that a knowledgeable, kind, and thoughtful person appears with survival supplies, and even more important, a flashlight and map to lead you out of this terrifying place. Imagine no more. Depression: A Guide for the Newly Diagnosed brings an invaluable map and light for those struggling with depression, the illness most likely to strike any of us during our lives. Buy it. Keep it handy for yourself and those you love.”
—J. Anderson Thomson, Jr., MD, staff psychiatrist at the University of Virginia Elson Student Health Center and coauthor of Facing Bipolar

“This is a straightforward, helpful, and easy-to-read guide for the depressed person.”
—Myrna Weissman, PhD, coauthor of Interpersonal Psychotherapy for Depressed Adolescents and A Clinician’s Quick Guide to Interpersonal Psychotherapy

“Depression is a treatable condition, but a complex one that requires those afflicted to understand what they are facing and what they need to do to get better. In this highly accessible book, Lee Coleman guides the reader through the complexity in a comforting and straightforward way, addressing issues of diagnosis, treatment, and maintaining recovery. If you have depression and are confused about what to do, I highly recommend you start your path to wellness by reading this book.”
—Gregg Henriques, PhD, professor of clinical psychology at James Madison University and author of A New Unified Theory of Psychology

“The book is sufficiently comprehensive, yet concise and accessible enough for almost any mental health practitioner to recommend to clients who are experiencing depression. It enables any reader who experiences depression to join in their own treatment as an informed and empowered participant. The author integrates insights from the extensive professional literature on depression and treatment effectiveness with wisdom and sensitivity gained in his own clinical practice to provide a useful, straightforward orientation to depression treatment.”
—Karen Maitland Schilling, PhD, professor emerita of psychology at Miami University
