New edition of this popular book in the Sheldon Drug-Free Way series
Depression and anxiety aren t single diseases they are as personal as your fingerprints, and can arise from many different causes. Hence, the one-drug-fits-all approach may not work for you. Sometimes too drugs can give people a breathing space but don t cure depression and anxiety, or address any underlying issues. This book explores why drugs are only part of the answer and suggests other solutions including lifestyle changes and psychotherapy.
This new edition updates the information about depression and anxiety and their treatment. The update focuses on epidemiology, outcomes, and non-pharmacology treatments. New topics include research on sleep management and depression, particularly in young people; longterm health risks including earlier death; social media and depression; alcohol and depression.
