Are you struggling with depression?
Depression help is available to you.

Many who struggle with depression find that trying to get depression help is frustrating. Trying "self help for depression" can be even worse.

Do you find this to be the case? I want to reassure you -- there is hope.

In this Web site I will share a lot of information about depression and how you can help depression.

One of my Web site visitors recently pointed out an important fact. She commented that so much information about depression can be over-whelming -- especially for someone who is depressed.

You may be able to relate. You may not have the...

  • energy

  • concentration

  • motivation read long pages of information.

If this is the case I am doing two things to help you.

  • I am putting the major points on each page in red -- You can skim the page and get the important points by just reading the red text.

  • I am putting a brief summary in red at the bottom of each page -- You can scroll to the bottom of a page and read the summary if you wish.
I hope this helps.

Of course, if you want more detailed information you can still read all of each page.

My clients often tell me, "It seems like no one really understands what it is like to be depressed. A lot of people give you advice -- But none of it really seems to work."

So is there any help -- or self help -- for depression?
