"Will bring hope and comfort to the loved ones of those who struggle to overcome this most common of mental illnesses". -- Rosalynn Carter
This book is directed toward the caregiver or "strengthened ally" of any of the more than seventeen million Americans who suffer from this common but often misunderstood affliction. Woven throughout are the personal experiences of Mitch Golant, who spent most of his childhood with a mother who was seriously depressed, an experience that not only catapulted him into his work as a clinical psychologist, but also informs this book with a tone of compassionate understanding.
Among the many subjects addressed are:
-- the warning signs of serious illness
-- how to distinguish between real depression and a normal case of the blues
-- how to comfort a depressed person
-- how to maintain intimacy and communication
-- how to deal with the mental health community
-- the most successful forms of treatment
-- specific things to do and say that will help
-- what to do when someone threatens suicide
