Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Endorsement of First Edition: “This book is a lifesaver. This is one of the ‘must have’ books for anyone newly diagnosed with depression or manic depression. It is invaluable in teaching both sufferer and supporter the symptoms and coping skills. This book was monumental in helping me get through a severe depression that lasted nonstop for half a decade. I recommend this book to all my readers, and to anyone suffering with depression or bipolar disorders.”—Bob Olsen, author of the best-selling Win the Battle: The 3-Step Lifesaving Formula to Conquer Depression and Bipolar Disorder

“The second edition of this eminently useful guide offers readers proven and active courses of action for getting and staying on the road to wellness. Mary Ellen Copeland is an author who thoroughly understands depression and manic depression, and the book’s effective techniques and clear organization illustrate her commitment to facilitating real healing. Once again, Copeland has produced one of the very best books on the subject."

—Lauren Dockett, author of The Deepest Blue: How Women Face and Overcome Depression

    Helped me get through the day

    This is an extremely practical book that everyone suffering from depression or manic depression should own. It reminded me of Miklowitz's 'Bipolar Disorder Survival Guide' in that it was filled with hands on, useful suggestions for how to cope with these mental illnesses. The suggestions aren't always obvious, especially if you're depressed. This book should be used in conjunction with therapy and/or medication.

    A must see!

    This book by New Harbinger helps the reader by using a workbook format which will work well for a lot of people. Chock-full of resources, this book offers much information for the person struggling with depression. If you suffer from back pain too, try their back book, "The Multifidus Back Pain Solution."
