If you suffer from depression you are not alone – it affects 15.5 million in the US, and more than 3 million in the UK – and, you are much stronger than you think. This best-selling book, written by a leading consultant psychiatrist, explains that people with depression do battle with pressures and stresses that other people would run away from, until their bodies can take no more. In this book, depression is placed authoritatively as a physical illness, from which recovery is possible.
"Just what I needed"
Surveys of stress-related illness suggest that more than 250,000 people in the UK are experiencing stress at a level that is making them ill. Stress can indeed lead to extensive psychological and physical suffering but one thing is clear: we do have choices. This book offers not just the facts, but a message of hope. This book not only looks at the causes of stress, but also the manifestations and psychological conditions.
