A raw, real, and funny mental health memoir written by a depression sufferer who has overcome her illness

What would happen if a clinically depressed person embarked on a quest to not only overcome her condition, but discover the key to sustained happiness? Lana Penrose did just that. After going through a divorce and moving countries three times, Lana returned home to Australia and buckled like a soldier on a battlefield. The black dog bit, and it bit hard. Lana was diagnosed with major depression. Finding herself at a desperate crossroads, she took a sharp left and chose to fight for her happiness, star-rating her experiences along the way. This book covers what the journey of tackling depression is really like. Using herself as a human guinea pig, Lana tries almost every conceivable therapy: CBT, schema psychology, EMDR, acupuncture, meditation, medication, mindfulness, naturopathy, compassion, forgiveness, NLP, EFT, kinesiology, gratitude, visualization, and shamanism. If it was legal, Lana tried it, including pit-stopping for a fireside chat with a close associate of the Dalai Lama. Unbelievably, it worked, and the results were beyond even Lana’s wildest imaginings. Open, warm, and wise, The Happiness Quest is for all depression sufferers and happiness seekers alike.
