Giveaway: Living with Depression by Deb Serani

[ 86 ] November 1, 2011 |

November 19th is Suicide Survivor Awareness Day. In honor of this date, author Deb Serani is giving away 3 signed copies of her book, Living with Depression.

About the book

One out of four Americans will experience mental illness in their lifetime; major depressive disorder is the leading cause of disability in the United States for ages 15 through 44. However, only a fraction of those suffering will seek treatment; 25 percent will seek treatment for symptoms. Stigma claims the other 75 percent, wedging depressed individuals into a life of silent suffering.

In Living with Depression, Serani outlines the various forms of depression, describes the different treatments, and outlines methods for living with depression and getting the help you or a loved one needs. Tips on how to choose a good therapist, negotiate the labyrinth of healthcare, and minimize stigma are addressed, as is learning how to use biology and biography as tools of empowerment. Listings of national and global resources make this a ready resource for everything you need to know about depression.

    I have Major Depression. It is not easy to live with, many people think that you can just snap out of it. It really runs through our family. My father had Bi-Polar Disorder, my mother was hospitalized twice for reactive depression and my brother died of his first suicide attempt. I would really like to read this book!!!

    This is a subject near to my heart because several people in my family including myself, suffer from depression and have ended up in Psychiatric Hospitals after a failed suicide attempt on more than one occasion.

    With those numbers (one in every four Americans), everyone’s going to come in contact with depression at some point. Being educated about it is really important.
