    schema:reviewBody ""Nearly everyone can recall a time when life seemed dreary or when they were feeling blue. However, for millions of American women, depression is a serious illness that is often hard to recognize and difficult to understand. Although the vast majority of those who seek treatment experience a significant improvement, the stigma attached to depression keeps many women from asking for the help they need. Using case studies, personal stories, and the most current medical information, A Woman Doctor's Guide to Depression explains the difference between a simple case of the "blues" and actual depression, women's special risks of developing depression - from puberty to menopause, why medication is often the first treatment, but rarely the only treatment, how to choose a therapist, and the keys to coping with the symptoms of depression at work and at home." "Including a simple guide to the latest drugs and therapies and helpful Q & A sections throughout, A Woman Doctor's Guide to Depression is a compassionate, authoritative book for every woman."--Jacket." ;
