How should we go about choosing the doctor in whom we will entrust our health? How can we contribute to make our consultation more effective, in order to help our doctor make a better diagnosis and find the most appropriate solutions? And when should we put an end to the relationship of trust with our doctor?"

How can depression be overcome? And how can someone suffering from depression recover a sense of well-being, self-esteem and joy? How can chronic fatigue be vanquished? During the past few years, both the diagnosis and treatment of depression have greatly evolved, and even if depression remains a complex illness, effective treatment is now available. The advice given in this book depends on the active participation of victims of depression. It is by learning to know themselves, by understanding what is happening to them, and by becoming less vulnerable that they will overcome their depression.
