I highly recommend "Understanding Depression and Finding Hope." I have told many people about it and including this order, I have purchased 6. The authors wrote from personal as well as professional experience.
It is an excellent book for those with depression or to understand the actions of a loved one or friend.

The book covers depression exceptionally well. It helps one to understand depression and to overcome wrong ideas about depression that one might have as a Christian. It also helps those suffering from depression to understand what is happening to them and why as well as being able to get the help needed. It is written in such a way that any lay person can understand.

As a healthcare professional, I've read many books on depression. I appreciate the authors helping people understand depression is a medical condition, just as is high blood pressure or diabetes. It will probably become my "go to" recommendation for my patients w/ depression. Though it is a book about depression, the insights can be easily extrapolated to many difficulties in life.

I have 2 family members in BiPolar condition, & they both have had this condition for about 25 years - Every case is different, different medications are needed case by case.
Exercise & group therapy are helpful.
This book needs a broader base of individuals for its story: more examples of the patient, the treatment, the support by family & professional caregivers.

I am a psychology major and I read this book to see if there were new findings on the study of clinical depression. This is the most practical book I have ever read on the subject. If you are suffering from depression or you know someone who is, please read this book. It offers solutions to help a person physically, emotionally and spiritually. It gives hope to all who read it. You can function normally in life even if you are subject to depression. There is help and hope for you, if you will take some of this information and apply it.
