Description

More than 20 million Americans will suffer an episode of depression or mania during their lifetimes, and one in five American families will feel its impact directly. For these families, "Overcoming Depression" is the essential resource. Since its first publication in 1987, it has become the book most often recommended by doctors to their depressed patients because it clearly and sympathetically presents state-of-the-art medical information and the solid, practical advice that patients and their families need to participate actively in diagnosis and treatment. Now featuring all-new data on the latest drugs, research, treatment, and medical insurance, it also includes a frank discussion of psychiatric therapy in the era of managed care."Helpful and practical information for depressed persons and their families." "--Los Angeles Times" "Overcoming Depression" is now "the" book, the first book that should be read by laypersons and all health professionals who are concerned with depressive illness in all its forms." "--National Alliance for the Mentally Ill Newsletter" "Concise, clearly written, and up-to-date. An excellent resource for patients and families afflicted by depression and manic-depressive illness."--E. Fuller Torrey, M.D., author of "Surviving Schizophrenia" "This is the best book on depression for general audiences that I have ever seen....I strongly recommend this book."--Robert M.A. Hirschfeld, M.D., chairman, Dept. of Psychiatry, University of Texas at Galveston"The most comprehensive book available for the layperson on depression. A storehouse of useful, indeed essential, information."--Donald F. Klein, M.D., Columbia University College of Physicians andSurgeons
