Being depressed often leaves you feeling paralysed into inaction. Climbing back out of the pit of gloom seems almost impossible. You need help, and that is what this book offers - practical, humane and spiritual help. Sue Atkinson has suffered years of depression herself. She does not write as an expert on depression or as a depression counsellor, but as someone who knows the feelings from close personal experience. As a result, her book contains a varied menu of hints, quotations and illustrations, not page after page of unbroken text. This is a book to dip into as fits your mood and need, making a dependable guide to the climb.

`This is wise stuff, with resonance that lingers on long after it is over, none more than the hope it offers, born of experience.' -- Ann Pilling * The Door *
