The implication is that in cultures where survival is at a premium, where simply negotiating the basics of existence takes all one's time and energy, depression is not to be found. The corollary of such a view is the exhortation to the ...

'Anyone worried about a depressed friend or relative should read this book' DAILY TELEGRAPH _________________________________________________ In 1982, leading psychiatrist and TV presenter Anthony Clare interviewed Spike Milligan for the radio series In The Psychiatrist's Chair. He was so overwhelmed by Milligan's account of his forty years of depressive experiences that he knew he had found the right person to help him illuminate and explore the mysterious and sometimes terrifying condition that is clinical depression. Depression and How to Survive It charts the development of world-famous comedian Spike Milligan's clinical depression and the strategies he used in dealing with the often-misunderstood disorder. Drawing inspiration and advice from Spike's experience, this unique book from one of Britain's most successful psychiatrists, will take you to the depths of human unhappiness and show you the way towards leading a happy life.

Each year more than 17 million Americans suffer from a depressive illness, yet few suffer in solitude. How You Can Survive When They're Depressed explores depression from the perspective of those who are closest to the sufferers of this prevalent disorder--spouses, parents, children, and lovers--and gives the successful coping strategies of many people who live with a clinical depressive or manic-depressive and often suffer in silence, believing their own problems have no claim to attention. Depression fallout is the emotional toll on the depressive's family and close friends who are unaware of their own stressful reactions and needs. Sheffield outlines the five stages of depression fallout: confusion, self-doubt, demoralization, anger, and finally, the desire to escape. Many people will find relief in the knowledge that their self-blame, guilt, sadness, and resentment are a natural result of living with a depressed person. Sheffield brings together many real-life examples from the pioneering support group she attends at Beth Israel Medical Center of how people with depression fallout have learned to cope. From setting boundaries to maintaining an outside social life, she gives practical tactics for handling the challenges and emotional stresses on a day-to-day basis.

THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER Last Christmas I almost killed myself. Almost. I've had a lot of almosts. Never gone from almost to deed. Don't think I ever will. But it was a bad almost. Living Better is Alastair Campbell's honest, moving and life affirming account of his lifelong struggle with depression. It is an autobiographical, psychological and psychiatric study, which explores his own childhood, family and other relationships, and examines the impact of his professional and political life on himself and those around him. But it also lays bare his relentless quest to understand depression not just through his own life but through different treatments. Every bit as direct and driven, clever and candid as he is, this is a book filled with pain, but also hope -- he examines how his successes have been in part because of rather than despite his mental health problems -- and love. We all know someone with depression. There is barely a family untouched by it. We may be talking about it more than we did, back in the era of 'boys don't cry' - they did you know - and when a brave face or a stiff upper lip or a best foot forward was seen as the only way to go. But we still don't talk about it enough. There is still stigma, and shame, and taboo. There is still the feeling that admitting to being sad or anxious makes us weak. It took me years, decades even to get to this point, but I passionately believe that the reverse is true and that speaking honestly about our feelings and experiences (whether as a depressive or as the friend or relative of a depressive) is the first and best step on the road to recovery. So that is what I have tried to do here.

This book is meant to be uplifting and helpful throughout disastrous times, now and ahead. It serves as a guide to store necessities and replenish them, to create your own earth medicines, to grow a garden and use the produce. Within are ideas about how to cook nutritionally for a family while spending a very small amount of money. Additionally there are ideas for stretching your dollars or even doing without cash and still receiving goods or services. Other topics are mentioned, such as sun and wind as energy sources with excellent references for further study.

As both an academic and professional psychologist, my background is somewhat unique. Most psychologists either opt for the research route, where they study human behavior in the hope of generating insightful theories, or they choose to work clinically with clients and patients. The problems with these distinct pathways should seem appar ent. In their academic role, research psychologists study and gener ate numerous theories about people, both as individualsandas social beings. However, while their conclusions may provide the basis for therapeutic work, research psychologists are not clinicians. Con versely, clinical psychologists and other therapists are trained princi pally to work with clients and patients. While many clinicians carry out research projects, their time is mostly spent offering professional help to people. Although both roles serve to advance the science and practice of psychology, researchers in their ivory towers may find their abstract theories and conclusions are inapplicable in the "real world," whereas therapists might discover they work within pre scribed treatment frameworks without questioning the limits of these approaches. Because of my two professional roles, I have aimed to bridge this gap. Here, I have combined my experiences of researching and treat ing depression with the intentions of improving treatments and of encouraging better communication between the two psychologies. Kristina Downing-Orr Oxford, England V Acknowledgments Many people provided the inspiration for this book, and I will be etemally grateful for all their assistance.

Weaving the personal in with the professional the author approaches clinical depression from many angles. He is someone who has very much lived it from both sides of the therapy room, having worked with thousands of patients in the course of his career, and struggled with his own problems intermittently for over 25 years. He has appreciation of both the psychological and psychiatric approaches to depression. The result is a comprehensive, concise and holistic self-help resource which recognises the huge difficulties in combating this most awful of afflictions. At the same time this is a book full of hope and practical solutions, very much promoting the message that this illness can be survived and managed going forward. From helpful medication to a nutritionally therapeutic diet, from dealing with your negative thinking to engaging in non-threatening helpful behaviours, this book will change your mindset on depression and set you firmly on the path to recovery.

Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.
