"What do you have to be depressed about?" Bet you've heard that one
before. Or how about, "You're depressed? Just get over it!" Easier
said than done, right? Or here's a favorite, "They have a pill for
that now, you know."
Unfortunately, such naive armchair psychology rarely works
for someone suffering from the very real plight of depression. All
it does is seek to trivialize depression and characterize depressed
people as "whiners" who have nothing better to do than to "complain
about their lives." But the truth is, depression is a very real
problem. In fact, the World Health Organization estimates that, on
any given day, 121 million people worldwide suffer from depression.
And depression rates continue to increase ? for
example, kids exhibit depression at nearly ten times the rate of
previous generations. Theories abound as to why depression rates
are increasing, but regardless of the cause, this scourge continues
to rob its victims of happiness, joy, and the capacity to give and
receive love.

So why Depression For Dummies, when there's already a
glut of self-help books on the market peddling so-called cures and
remedies for depression? Because this book satisfies the need for a
straight-talking, no-nonsense resource on depression. The only
agenda of Depression For Dummies is to present you with the
facts on depression and explain the options for dealing with it.
Rest assured, this is no infomercial in a yellow and black
