services, Dr. Noonan explains how to obtain care from

with depression: in accessible language, it offers firm, specific
advice and quick cognitive tests and self-assessment metrics that
even those in the deepest of doldrums will find helpful and
relevant... a valuable volume for those suffering from depression,

to charting moods and preventing relapses, this workbook is a top
pick for any depression sufferer!"-Reference and Research Book News

genre of self-help works on this topic."-Library Journal "This text
is a much-needed addition to mental health literature, as

and loved ones who frequently do not obtain help on their
own."-American Reference Books Annual "This book offers useful
insight for any health professional working within mental health...
It is of enormous value to the layperson, hungry for knowledge
about how best to interact and help their loved one face the
dreadful ravages of depression."-Nursing Times
