Description

Managing the Depression Puzzle provides a comprehensive, holistic look at how to manage mental illnesses that have a depressive component.  While the term holistic is often used to refer only to alternative therapies, here holistic is used to cover everything up to and including the kitchen sink to target as many different aspects of depression as possible.

Both illness treatment strategies and wellness promotion strategies are addressed.  Topics covered include medications, somatic treatments like transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), psychotherapy, supplements and herbal products, activation, mindfulness, self-care, and more.  Elements of the depression experience such as stigma, decision-making around disclosure, and identity management are also discussed.

Every individual’s depressive illness is unique, and that means that the combination of strategies that will work for each individual will also be unique.  This book doesn’t tell you what to do; instead, it offers information and ideas that you can try out to see if they work or don’t work for you and your illness.

Managing the Depression Puzzle draws on my training and experience as a mental health nurse and former pharmacist, as well as personal experiences living with major depressive disorder.  The approach is pragmatic, candid, very much anti-BS.
