Managing the Depression Puzzle provides a comprehensive look at how to manage depressive illnesses. A wide range of strategies are presented, from illness treatment to wellness promotion, with the recognition that everyone’s depression puzzle is unique, and not every puzzle piece will be the right fit.
Topics include medications, electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), a range of different forms of psychotherapy, supplements and herbal products, activation, mindfulness, self-care, and more. Elements of the depression experience like treatment resistance, stigma, decision-making around disclosure, and identity management are also discussed.
Managing the Depression Puzzle draws on the author’s education and experience as a mental health nurse and former pharmacist, as well as personal experience living with treatment-resistant major depressive disorder. The approach is pragmatic, candid, and realistic about the potential usefulness of different interventions. Knowledge is power, and the more you know about your options, the better the position you’re in to manage your illness.
