• Dancing in the Dark How to Take Care of Yourself When Someone You Love Is Depressed

Depression's been called 'the common cold of mental illness' because so many Americans suffer from it every year. In 2006, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that one in twenty Americans over the age of twelve has suffered from depression. And most of these people have spouses, families, and jobs, multiplying the effects of depression until almost no family in the country is untouched by this common, but potentially deadly, illness. However, help is available for all those affected by depression, whether their own or that of a family member.

Dancing in the Dark: How to Take Care of Yourself When Someone You Love Is Depressed is brimming with tried-and-true suggestions, helpful hints, and up-to-date resources for anyone whose life is affected by the depression of another. Authors Bernadette Stankard and Amy Viets offer compassionate wisdom, reflective quotations, and practical assistance based on their personal experience of life with depressed partners; they are also qualified as educators, authors, public speakers, and women of faith: 

“The set of tools and guidance offered in Dancing in the Dark is a valuable resource for the often over-looked caretakers and loved ones of those dealing with depression. The book provides a wealth of information in an engaging and relatable way, which would be beneficial for anyone who has been touched by depression. As a mental health professional who has seen the impact that mental illness has on families, I would highly recommend the tools in this book as a way to navigate the difficult terrain of depression and mental illness.”
