Understanding Depression…two useful guides

Depression is one of those things that is sometimes really hard to understand.  People sometimes judge a person negatively when they have depression if they don’t understand.

I am often asked … “What can I do to help someone experiencing depression?”

If you want to know more about supporting someone with depression then I recommend you read a book called “Living with a black dog” by Matthew and Ainsley Johnstone.  The term “black dog” was first coined by the Roman poet Horace and later adopted  by Winston Churchill to describe his own depression.  “Living with a black dog” is a great book and is aimed and helping those who want know how to help someone with depression.

If you want to know more about depression, then Matthew and Ainsley Johnstone have also written “I had a black dog”.

These books have now been converted into a short video on YouTube…
