My book offers practical advice on how people can get a depressed loved one to open up their emotional world to them, so that they can help their depressed loved ones through this ordeal.
College Station, Texas (PRWEB) February 20, 2013
The World Health Organization predicts that depression will be the number one killer disease by 2030. When compared with smoking, alcoholism and bad cholesterol levels, depression is a stronger risk factor for heart disease and mental illness
Inspired by his father's illness, Texas-based author Felix Freeman hopes that his book will fill the gap in lack of advice to supporting friends and family of depressed people.
Reders can expect to receive solid advice on how to help someone with depression, and the author promises valuable reading for those who want to know more about the illness and seek ideas that would aid recovery.
Also a member of the British Psychological Society, Freeman said, "a depressed person may clam up and reject help in fear of being judged and treated differently. Loved ones should not take this as a sign to leave them alone, because it is in a sense, an actual plea for help. My book offers practical advice on how people can get a depressed loved one to open up their emotional world to them, so that they can help their depressed loved ones through this ordeal."
Here are what two reviewers have said about the book:
