"Wootton is ahead of the pack. He is standing up to the pervasive deficit-based view of people with psychiatric disorders and saying with grace, humor and the strength of personal experience that it is possible to take this disorder and live abundantly and creatively. Tom is helping people both to face up to their illness and to resist accepting a diminished story of their lives."
Maureen Duffy, Ph.D., Professor and Chairperson, The Counseling Program, Barry University
In The Depression Advantage, Tom reveals his epiphany about the surprising advantages of the depressive state, completing the picture and accelerating the new world view that people with mental conditions can be successful. Tom has developed an entirely new system of representing the spectrum of emotional states experienced by people with mental conditions. His revolutionary ideas about redefining functionality and scale provide a powerful set of tools for those looking to turn their perceived 'illness' into a vehicle for a rich, fulfilling and successful life.
Drawing from historical and literary examples ranging from the lives of the Saints to Buddhist parables to pop culture heroes like the X-Men, The Depression Advantage demonstrates that spiritual and emotional pain can actually be a catalyst for personal growth and transcendent understanding.
"Tom Wootton takes existing medical care and augments it to a promising new level for all patients and their loved ones. The combination of accessible information and executive level presentation is a very exciting development. His work in the field offers the most logical and exciting path to success in mental health today."
