Depression is a complex illness that presents in a myriad of ways and affects more than 350 million people worldwide. While medications and conventional cognitive-behavioral approaches to the treatment of depression have success, for many people these kinds of one-size-fits-all treatments are not enough to alleviate the symptoms of depression or help them find a long-term path toward wellness.

In The Complete Guide to Self-Management of Depression: Practical and Proven Methods, Dr. Harpreet S. Duggal offers several evidence-based treatments for depression and presents them in a practical, easy-to-use format that can be incorporated into day-to-day self-management of depression. Self-management is increasingly becoming the standard of care in people with long-standing medical conditions, and it broadens the narrow perspective of self-help beyond the traditional treatment of symptoms to include behavioral methods, positive psychology interventions, mindfulness, and complementary and alternative medicine approaches for treating depression. Finally, besides a focus on treating symptoms, it also addresses lifestyle changes, social relationships, communication, problem-solving, and elements of wellness and recovery.

In contrast to the traditional one-size-fits-all approach of self-help books on depression, The Complete Guide to Self-Management of Depression offers a menu of options for self-management of depression and provides guidance on whenand when notto use or combine particular strategies. Placing those who suffer from depression in the drivers seat of self-management can help them build confidence and prepare for the journey of managing depression.
