Reviews - What do customers think about Through the Dark Woods: A Young Woman's Journey Out of Depression?
A helpful look at the subject of depression Jan 28, 2007
Joanna Swinney's book is a comprehensive look at depression, how it affects the sufferer and those around them. She describes what depression can feel like and how support from people can make a significant difference. She discusses talk therapy and medication as well as some things that people can do themselves to help when they are depressed.
The book is written from a Christian perspective and she talks about a lot of benefits that the church and Christians can bring, as well as some of the difficulties that Christians may have, particularly with regard to suicide. This is an informative and excellent book which should be helpful for people dealing with this subject and which, although not unrealistically positive about the outlook, is an encouraging read.
