Author(s): Graeme Cowan
Graeme's new book directly addresses the questions of 2 million, often despairing, Australians who are trying to help a loved one with depression. The advice is based on interviews with over 300 depression sufferers and 100 caregivers. In a highly sympathetic style it lists the seven frustrations of carers as revealed by the research and then sensitively outlines possible solutions. It is careful to highlight that each situation is unique. Back From the Brink Too skillfully blends this information with first-hand accounts from carers for some of the interviewees from the first book to maintain continuity in the series. It also includes direct quotes from carers on what they have found most helpful in ensuring their own good health whilst supporting their loved one.
