According to recent statistics, over ten percent of Americans suffer from depression sometime during their life. Considering that this numbers in the millions, many people of all ages, from all walks of life would find Depression: The Darkness Within, worthwhile and educational.
When one considers the extraordinarily high rate of this disease, it is logical to question why depression occurs. Depression: The Darkness Within covers in full detail why depression exists and its cures.
Over the past eighteen years, since drugs have been on the market to help treat depression, there has been a wealth of knowledge gained as to the efficacy of cures for this disease. For the treatment of bi-polar disorder, medical science has made great strides towards developing certain mood stabilizing agents for this form which Dr. Fry covers.
In addition to drug treatment, one other form of therapy has been found to be effective in dealing with depression as well, and that is self-help groups.
Schizoaffective disorder, the rare form of depression that Dr. Fry suffers from is also covered.
Finally, Depression: The Darkness Within ends with a chapter on mental institutions and their effectiveness, explaining how the old time institutions operated, and how depressed patients at these facilities were treated. Included is a story of an experience that one of Joseph Kennedy's daughters had in a state insane asylum.
