Your toolkit for managing and overcoming symptoms of depression—quickly and effectively!

In an increasingly stressful world filled with fear and uncertainty, on top of the all-consuming grind of day-to-day life, managing depression may feel overwhelming. Everyday tasks can seem insurmountable, symptoms pile up, and relief slips further out of reach. 

Designed to get right to the point, this book wastes no time in giving you the tools you need to quickly improve your mood, get unstuck from difficult feelings, and stay on top of symptoms before they get the best of you. The sooner your symptoms are under control, the sooner you can get back on track—happier, more motivated, and looking forward with hope.

Written by a veritable dream team of mental health experts, this short, easy-to-use guide offers evidence-based skills grounded in mindfulness, acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and behavioral activation to help you effectively manage negative thoughts, get motivated, rediscover hope, and develop healthy habits.

5.0 out of 5 stars   Excellent Resource!

“This is the best book for actually knowing what to do to counteract depression. The coping skills and tools work if you apply them. There is something for everyone regarding what will work for you. I found what worked for me and I practice what I have learned daily and it helped immediately. I also felt validated that it is normal to feel depressed with what is going on in the world today. It’s a very upbeat and positive book. And, it’s one I will refer to when I need encouragement during the difficult times in life. It gets straight to the point and explains what to do for each situation. I highly recommend this book. Well done.”
