For many Latinas, fighting depression is a lonely, life-draining battle. Afraid of being considered crazy, or loca, Latinas go to great lengths to deny the toll depression takes on the quality of their lives and relationships. By enabling the recognition and understanding of depression in themselves or a sister, best friend, or cousin, The Seven Beliefs opens the door for healing in a poignant, powerful way. In a friendly, easy-to-read format that combines medical guidance with traditional wisdom, The Seven Beliefs encourages Latinas to confront depression in an assertive and empowering way. Using stories and letters from patients they have encountered, the authors show readers how to take charge of their lives so that they can become physically, emotionally, and spiritually balanced women.
