Depression is greatly misunderstood. Those that admit to suffering from it very often feel ashamed. Those that have never suffered from it think it's all a matter of "getting a grip". Here for the first time is a book written by a psychiatrist which offers a full understanding of the condition and practical, tried and tested techniques to help overcome it. Whether for you, or someone close to you who suffers, "Defeat Depression" will prove invaluable. Sabina reveals: the importance of a good night's sleep; how to raise your self-esteem; ten foods for good moods; the pills and potions to avoid and those that work; who can help you beat the blues; nature's best anti-depressants; and how self-help and group therapy can work for you.
