What it is, why it is and how to spot it: understanding what depression is and how to recognize the symptoms. Images of psychiatry: why we don't like psychiatrists; an explanation of the mythology and misconceptions that surround psychiatric medicine. Psychiatrists are doctors, too: the facts about medical approaches to the treatment of depression; medication and electroconvulsive therapy. Whose couch is it anyway!: what's the difference between a psychiatrist and a psychologist?; an overview of psychological therapies used in the treatment of depression. Pine, honeysuckle and water violets: what natural therapies have to offer. And the kneebone's connected to the thighbone: acknowledging the burden of caring; looking after your physical and emotional well being. The forgotten link: determining both the contributions as well as the limitations of spiritual counsel and support when dealing with a loved one suffering depressive illness. Cry baby cry: is it just the "baby-blues" or is it post-natal depression?; husbands matter too: "You can go on for a long time knowing that things are wrong and not knowing what to do or what to say", a husbands account of dealing with post-natal depression. More than just a phase: research alerts us to a higher incidence of depression at a younger age - a trend verified by the increase in teenage suicide rates. A family affair: learn from the hindsight of other families and gain solace from their understandings. You've got a friend: it takes a lot of tolerance, love and understanding to support a depressed friend; should you be ding more, should you be doing less, or should you be doing something completely different?
