Moving Beyond Depression [BOOK EXCERPTS]

“What is wrong with me? Beth wondered. The worry, never far from the surface of her thoughts, intruded again. But still, Beth had no answer. She felt run down, listles, and unable to generate energy or enthusiasm about anything. She made sure her kids were taken care of and pantomimed her way through a declining number of social functions, but she couldn’t remember the last time she could honestly say she felt good….”

So begins my book, Moving Beyond Depression: A Whole-Personal Approach to Healing. And based on statistics from the World Health Organization that show an alarming rise in depression, the importance of sharing an effective treatment that has proven success is critical. In fact, by 2020 it is projected that, second only to heart disease, depression will be the leading cause of debilitating illness.

If you suspect that you are depressed, take this depression survey. Though no replacement for a formal diagnosis, it can help you recognize the signs so you can reach out for the help you need. Beyond that I do recommend my book, excerpts of which I have linked to for you below.
