How do you know if you’re just feeling a bit sad or if you are depressed? What level of sadness is ‘normal’? How do you work out what’s going on when you feel down? What kinds of treatment are available? How do you help a family member or friend who is depressed?

Psychologist Gwendoline Smith answers these questions and many more. She specifically explains post-natal blues and depression; depression in children, teens and older people; depression in relation to gender and sexuality; and Covid blues. Her knowledge is based on much research, and both clinical and personal experience of depression.

She covers the full range of treatment options, from psychiatry through to natural therapies.

With her characteristic humorous approach, examples and anecdotes, Gwendoline offers powerful strategies for addressing these issues.

Based on cognitive behavioural therapy, The Book of Feeling Blue will help you understand depression and learn how to treat it.
