"In a newly revised edition of Depression, the Mood Disease, Dr. Francis Mondimore explores the many faces of an illness that will affect as many as 36 million Americans at some point in their lives. Concise, informative, and accessible, this widely acclaimed consumer's guide has been thoroughly updated to reflect state-of-the-art treatment. It tells readers exactly what they need to know about antidepressant drugs and electro-convulsive therapy, about Seasonal Affective Disorder and panic attacks, about the special problems of depression in children and older persons, and how to deal with a depressed friend or family member. Dr. Mondimore explains how such disorders as hormonal imbalance can mimic the symptoms of depression, and why depression is sometimes misdiagnosed as PMS, drug abuse, or Alzheimer's disease. The revised Depression, the Mood Disease offers needed advice?and a message of hope."--JHU Press
