What To Do When Someone You Love Is Depressed by Mitch Golant is a very practical guide to understanding depression and gives the caregiver insight into the mind of someone suffering from a mood disorder. I found the book to offer up some excellent advice, it is not one I plan to buy, but I am definitely glad I read it and would suggest What To DO When Someone You Love Is Depressed to others who live with someone suffering from depression.
