Depressed?: Here is a Way Out

Depressed?: Here is a Way Out

by Dorothy Rowe (Foreword), HughSmith (Author)


Depression affects the lives of thousands of people every year, locking them into a prison of isolation and guilt from which it seems impossible to escape. In this practical book the author, a former priest who runs a Community Health Programme, sets out to offer hope to sufferers by showing that there is a way out. Factors such as loneliness, worry, childbirth, bereavement, fear, anger and feelings of failure are all causes of depression, and the author believes that, with help, people can overcome these problems by facing up to them. One way is in the sharing environment of self-help groups which follow the 12 steps of letting go compulsions and handing over one's will to God. The book advises on how to join, or even set up, such a group, with a view to starting a true and lasting recovery.
