Item description for What To Do When Someone You Love Is Depressed : A Practical, Compassionate, and Helpful Guide by Mitch Golant Ph.D. & Susan K. Golant...

This book is directed toward the caregiver or "strengthened ally" of any of the more than seventeen million Americans who suffer from this common but often misunderstood affliction. Woven throughout are the personal experiences of Mitch Golant, who spent most of his childhood with a mother who was seriously depressed, an experience that not only catapulted him into his work as a clinical psychologist, but also informs this book with a tone of compassionate understanding.

Among the many subjects addressed are:
* the warning signs of serious illness
* how to distinguish between real depression and a normal case of the blues
* how to comfort a depressed person
* how to maintain intimacy and communication
* how to deal with the mental health community
* the most successful forms of treatment
* specific things to do and say that will help
* what to do when someone threatens suicide

Not really helpful  Apr 10, 2007
nothing you can't find on the internet. don't waste your money on this book....
Someone you Love is Depressed  Feb 2, 2006
Very Good and helpful book hoping it will keep me on the right track where I want to be. It has helped my boyfriend understand alittle more.

Thank You ! Thank You ! Thank You !  Feb 21, 2005
My love one and me were is a very low situation before I started reading this book. He has slight depression and taking Paxil as a medication. Aside the side effect of the pills, depression also changed some of his behavior, and his attitude toward our daily life. I felt negleted, and suspect that our love is no more there.

The worse thing is I don't know what is happending, how to deal with that, and should I talk to him.

After reading this book, it clearly explained everything I need to know. From what kind of symptoms he may has, what kind of medication will result to what kind of effects, to how to deal with the situation, and how to conduct a positive communication.

I am grateful about reading this book. Becuase of it, those depressive conversations during a big disagreement, I was able to calm myself and really see through the heart of the one I love, to see behind it was just a inconfident and insurced heart which need a strong ally. Instead of arguing over nonscence, I gave him a hug and kiss, and reassure my love one we will go throught whatever turmoil together.

This book saved our relationship, saved my love one, and saved me. Like a lighthouse, it points a direction with light. I am very grateful.
Not overly informative  Jan 16, 2005
Honestly, the only way to help a loved one understand depression is to talk to them about it. Do some research on the internet about the symptoms, common issues and what to look out for. I don't expect someone to read a book about depression because no case is the same.
A depressed person says...  Aug 23, 2004
The person while he gives good advice in some areas but not in others. The book ignores some of the real and unsolvable causes of depression such as, the crises of expectations with regards to oneself and how society operates on the whole.

Some people are and will be depressed through their biology/neurology throughout life no matter how successful they are. You can't ignore people who have everything in regards to resources yet kill themselves or are hopelessly miserable. How can one have all those resources, doctors, therapists, and the best medicine and alternatives can offer at ones disposal and then still be depressed for instance?

A failure to understand that some people are victims of the laws of genetics, environment and nature of society... permanently. Many times people are also brought to the brink through our cut throat and uncaring capitalist society. Case in point: Many people commit suicide due to financial issues they cannot get out of which many aren't there own fault, debt accumulated through just paying for a roof over your head, means to get to work and the 'true' necessities of modern working life.
