Reviews

'This book is very easy to read and gets straight to the facts about depression. It is often said that depression is a family illness because it affects not just the individual but those closest to them too. Jim and the kids maybe feel responsible and unable to help and that's been the experience in our family also. We have learned to support and just be there without taking it personally. Well done on helping to educate younger people about a subject that is too often still taboo.'
- Alan Thornburrow, Former Director of Action on Depression

'Depression is a serious mental health concern that will touch most people at some point during their lifetime. Although a common condition, depression is frequently unrecognised. Can I tell you about Depression? A guide for friends, family and professionals is an ideal, illustrated introduction to depression for both young people and older readers. This clearly-written, concise book provides valuable information for family members, friends, and professionals about the signs and symptoms of depression and how they can help and support someone with the condition.'
