Editorial Reviews

NAMI Advocate
Very few mental illness advice books manage to be simple, user-friendly, enjoyable, helpful, and fully authoritative all at once. This book manages to do just that. It is clear, comprehensive, and covers everything the ordinary reader wants and needs to know about depression to become an informed consumer. Francis Mark Mondimore, M.D., of Johns Hopkins University, adds an enthusiastic foreword.

The latest scientific theories, medications, treatments, and exciting research initiatives are discussed in layman's terms, keeping it simple enough to understand without oversimplifying. The author has a fully mainstream approach, emphasizing antidepressants, psychotherapy, and ECT. A separate chapter also addresses the many competing alternative treatments, such as herbal supplements, homeopathy, acupuncture, yoga, meditation, and massage. An impressive extended discussion of suicide prevention is included, along with many helpful coping suggestions and an extensive bibliography for those wishing to explore further.
