Notes: 
Review, Network Winter 2003: One in five people will have a depressive illness during their lifetime, and twice as many women will be affected by these illnesses as men. Depression and bipolar disorder are serious medical conditions that often result in personal distress, work disability and social isolation comparable to that of similarly serious health conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease and high blood pressure. In any one year, 9.5% of the population will experience depression serious enough to compromise their quality of life. This book provides information to explain how depression affects the brain, how its effects can be reversed, as well as information on drug therapies. Depression and Bipolar Disorders also offers practical self-help suggestions, detailed case histories, suggested reading and a list of helpful organizations.
