There are plenty of depression books on the market, but none of them distill critical information about cognitive skills, lifestyle changes, medications, social skills, and relapse prevention into this small and potent of a package. In less than 200 pages, Depression 101 presents readers with everything they need to know to begin treatment and overcome the disorder.
One debilitating symptom of depression is a lack of motivation to change. While lengthy depression self-help books may intimidate would-be readers, this accessible and friendly guide immediately jumps into easy, proven techniques including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), exercise, and mindfulness, that give readers encouraging results right away. A depression assessment scale helps readers determine their depression level.
