Editorial Reviews

"Dr. Beardslee's strategy in which all family members touched by depression are brought together to 'break the silence' is simple but full of wisdom. It is the psychiatric version of the old family doctor house call. One cannot help but be uplifted by these stories of struggle and recovery."
