In this book the author tells the story of his descent into severe depression and then his recovery from it. Using his own experience as a model for others, he shows that there is hope for those with depression, and advocates treatment through a combination of therapy, medicine, and faith.
Emerging from Depression is unique in that it is related from personal rather than clinical experience. It offers a multi-pronged approach to overcoming depression, and is told from a Catholic point of view, incorporating the element of faith in God's help as part of the recovery process. This is a deeply personal testimony from someone who considers his recovery from depression to be the most important accomplishment of his life.
The text is easy to understand and will be most helpful to those who are struggling with depression themselves. Self-help groups and friends or family members will find it useful for journeying with their depressed loved ones.
