"...Anne Sheffield, who coined the phrase "depression fallout" in her first book, How You Can Survive When They're Depressed, to describe the emotional toll of depression on spouses, parents, lovers, and children. Now, using poignant, real-life stories from her on-line support group (, she paints a vivid portrait of what happens to a loving relationship when depression enters the picture. Sharing essential information, compassion, and street-smart advice, Anne Sheffield tells you: What you need to know about your partner's mental health and what to do about it ... for your own well-being. What experiences, behaviors, and feelings are "normal" when dealing with depressive illness. How to overcome your sense of helplessness and take charge of your life. Ways to restore your optimism, peace of mind, and sense of humor. Where to find a community of peers to offer ongoing support." -From the Publisher
