An indispensable guide offering insight and support to carers of people with depression

Looking after a person with depression can often leave carers emotionally and physically exhausted. This short, straightforward and easily understandable guide offers valuable advice on how carers can:

- better understand the nature of depression and how it affects both patient and carer
- have a clearer understanding of the treatment options for the patient, including medication and therapy
- lessen the impact of the illness on the carer's life
- find the help and support they need
- maintain their own well-being whilst supporting the patient through to recovery and beyond

Although aimed at the carer, this is a guide that is equally valuable to the patient themselves and to their wider family and friends in promoting a better understanding of the experience of depression.

About the Author:

Tony Frais grew up in Middlesbrough. In 1967 at the age of 19, he travelled and worked around the USA and Canada for nearly two years which included a job selling guidebooks at the famous Expo 67 exhibition in Montreal. In 1972, he had his own music show on BBC RadioTees and then became the music critic for the local commercial radio station based in Stockton on Tees. In 1976, he wrote and co-produced a short ballet which was performed by the Royal Ballet in London.

In 2000, Tony gained an MA in medical ethics at the University of Leeds. Tony has written three children's books: Noah's Rocket in 2004, followed by Stanley's Space Adventure in 2006 and Stanley Saves the Amazon Rainforest in 2008. Tony is now conducting medical research and has had several papers published in leading medical journals.
