Depression is incredibly common and is on the rise. This very clear guide explains, in jargon-free terms, how to gauge the severity of your depression and the resources at your disposal - from G.P. through counselling and other types of therapy. Orthodox drugs, their side effects and interactions are examined, and helpful lifestyle choices are explored focussing on diet and exercise, and creative therapies such as Art, Dance, along with Complementary therapies including Acupuncture, Homeopathy, and Yoga. Depression in the young, the old, and post-natal depression are considered, and there is a directory of useful resources to call on. User-friendly, concise and informative.
