Depression: The way out of your prison (3rd Ed) 2003

'This book has saved my life', say thousands of people who have changed their lives forever after reading Depression: The Way Out of Your Prison over the past decade. 

Depression is the experience of a terrible isolation, of being alone in a prison.

But by understanding how we build the prison of depression we can dismantle it forever. Dorothy Rowe gives us a way of understanding depression, allowing us to take charge of our lives. She shows it is not an illness requiring drugs but a defence we use to hold ourselves together when we feel our lives falling apart.

This completely updated second edition takes account of recent changes in the NHS and includes information on services available for non-British readers. Those buying a further copy of this popular book will be interested to see new case histories alongside news about some of the people mentioned in the first edition.

Author of ten bestsellers on life and its problems, Dorothy Rowe is a clinical psychologist who now devotes her time to research, writing and teaching. Her work is read across the world in fourteen different languages and she is a sought-after speaker and commentator on depression and a wide range of psychological conditions.

You can't go to a party without meeting at least two people whose lives have been changed by Dorothy Rowe.
Linda Grant, The Guardian

Depression: The Way Out of Your Prison should be required reading for everyone: there are few of us untouched by depression.
