It can
be tough watching someone you love struggling with depression, with no idea how
best to help. Depression can be mild, or so all-consuming that the person you
love is hardly recognisable. It can come in bouts, or span a significant period
of time, which can take its toll on those closest to the sufferer.

In this
accessible guide, clinical psychologist Dr Emma Cotterill gives you a
clear understanding of the
nature of depression, likely causes and practical ways you
can help someone experiencing depression - however severe. She draws on
the experiences of both sufferers and their supporters to help you feel a little less alone in this difficult time. She also shows you the importance of looking after yourself, and how to seek outside help.

the book you will develop your own 'supporter's toolkit' of knowledge,
understanding, skills, strategies, self-care and resources that will help you
support your loved one as best you can, whilst maintaining your own self care
and boundaries.
