When Someone You Love is Depressed: How to Help Your Loved One Without Losing Yourself


Product Description

Published USA, 1996
Although written 20 years ago, this book still echoes the frustration and heartache of living with someone who is suffering from depression. The book gives sensitive guidance about how to recognise your needs, how to provide the best kind of support, and how to encourage the depressed person to seek treatment, at the same time taking care of the relationship that is threatened by a communication breakdown. Research has shown that if you are close to a person who is depressed, you are at a much higher risk of developing problems yourself, including anxiety, phobias and a form of contagious depression.
