Managing the Depression Puzzle

Mental Health @ Home Books
1

Managing the Depression Puzzle provides a comprehensive look at how to manage depressive illnesses. A wide range of strategies are presented, from illness treatment to wellness promotion, with the recognition that everyone's depression puzzle is unique, and not every puzzle piece will be the right fit. 

Topics include medications, electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), a range of different forms of psychotherapy, supplements and herbal products, activation, mindfulness, self-care, and more. Elements of the depression experience like treatment resistance, stigma, decision-making around disclosure, and identity management are also discussed.

Managing the Depression Puzzle draws on the author's education and experience as a mental health nurse and former pharmacist, as well as personal experience living with treatment-resistant major depressive disorder. The approach is pragmatic, candid, and realistic about the potential usefulness of different interventions. Knowledge is power, and the more you know about your options, the better the position you're in to manage your illness.

About the author

Ashley’s first career was as a pharmacist, but she chose to give that up to become a nurse. While completing her nursing degree she realized that mental health resonated more with her than any other area, and she has worked in the field for her entire 14+ year career. She has published papers in a number of academic nursing journals.


She was first diagnosed with depression in 2007, and since then she has been passionate about speaking up to challenge the stigma around mental illness. She completed a Master of Psychiatric Nursing degree despite two hospitalizations while she was in grad school.


She is the author of the blog Mental Health @ Home, where she talks candidly about all things mental health-related. You can find the blog at mentalhealthathome.org.


Ashley lives in Vancouver, Canada, with her beloved pet guinea pigs.
