Depression is wide-spread in today's world, with statistics suggesting that 1 in 5 of us will experience it at some stage in life. In First Steps out of Depression, successful author Sue Atkinson draws on her experiences as someone who has suffered - and recovered - from depression, to guide sufferers through the first stages of recovery themselves. Other titles in the First Steps series include: Anxiety, Bereavement, Eating Disorders, Gambling and Problem Drinking.
SUE ATKINSON is the author of CLIMBING OUT OF DEPRESSION, a highly successful book which has proved invaluable to many sufferers because it is written from the point of view of a sufferer rather than an 'expert'.
