Overview


Depression is the most common mental health condition in the United States. In fact, up to one in five women and one in ten men will experience it in their lifetimes. Because it’s so prevalent, it’s sometimes called the common cold of psychiatric illnesses. Of course, this flip attitude is completely misguided. If you suffer from depression, then you know how debilitating it is, and how it can drastically affect your day-to-day life.

If you’ve recently been diagnosed with depression, you probably have a few questions about the road to recovery that lies ahead. You might wonder what the best treatments are for your symptoms, how to tell if you’re making progress, and who, if anyone, you should tell about your diagnosis.

In Depression: A Guide for the Newly Diagnosed, you’ll find which treatments are right for you and learn what you can expect from the recovery process. You will discover simple changes to your sleep and nutrition habits that can really make a difference and learn how to monitor your progress as you start feeling better so you can adjust treatment as needed. With this guide helping you along in your recovery, you can be among the millions of people who have come back from depression stronger, healthier, and happier than before.

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
