Depression is a mental disorder with many faces and forms. It spans the very mild to the most severe form. Bipolar disorder, on the other hand, is the happy and sad two faces of mood disorders, where depression alternate with its counterpart: Mania and Hypomania. In this book, I share my years of experience as a psychiatrist working with patients who have struggled with depression or its other faces and recovered. The book reflects on our current scientific knowledge about this common psychological problem. It covers the nature of various forms of depression, its history, causes, available treatments (physical and psychological). I describe the techniques of cognitive therapy and how to use them to overcome depressive thoughts. The book discusses drugs used in mania and depression, resistant depression and treatment strategies in bipolar disorders. It covers details of the benefits of psychotherapy, in particular Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. It clarifies the role of other non-medication approaches and psychotherapies. The author endeavours to offer answers and guidance based on my clinical experience and scientific research. Many patients get better, a good number recover completely, and some may need long-term help when depression or hypomania come back. The majority of patients return back to their life and productivity. These mental health problems are not as gloomy as it appears. The book will give advice to the reader on steps to defeat depression. This book is a comprehensive guide to the general reader, written from the psychiatric point of view. It addresses many questions patients ask about their mood disorders, like how doctors decide upon diagnosis and treatment and what patients can do to get over their mood disorders. I hope that by reading through this book, you will recognize that you are not alone.
