I wrote This Is Depression for those who have depression, those who love someone who has depression, and for those who want to learn more about this disabling disorder.
— Diane McIntosh

Every person, at some time in their life, will have a mental illness or love someone who has a mental illness.

This Is Depression will help you find

a path

“Thoroughly up to date, this book is comprehensive yet engaging and easy to read. It describes the illness from both personal and clinical perspectives and successfully weaves case vignettes and valuable summaries of complex research literatures. Although there are many books on depression, this unique volume fills a void and I recommend it to depressed people and their loved ones, those who work with or employ depressed people, and mental health professionals looking to sharpen their psychoeducational skills.”
