A practical, step-by-step guide to identify and cope with depression by bestselling author and GP Dr Harry Barry. Depression and anxiety can have a debilitating effect on sufferers and their families. However, in many cases, these afflictions can be treated and risks of recurrence significantly reduced. Applying a system using colour-coded flags for various mental states and problems, Dr Barry explains the role our minds and brains play in the manifestation of depression and anxiety, and how these in turn can be shaped to lead us out of illness. Flagging the Therapy uses relatable case studies and examines the numerous medical, psychological and complimentary therapies that can all help in negotiating a pathway out of depression and anxiety.
