Looking after a person with depression can often leave carers emotionally and physically exhausted. This short, straightforward and easily understandable guide offers valuable advice on how carers can:

  • better understand the nature of depression and how it affects both patient and carer
  •  have a clearer understanding of the treatment options for the patient, including medication and therapy
  • lessen the impact of the illness on the carer's life
  • find the help and support they need
  • maintain their own well-being whilst supporting the patient through to recovery and beyond

Although aimed at the carer, this is a guide that is equally valuable to the patient themselves and to their wider family and friends in promoting a better understanding of the experience of depression.
