This book is very easy to read and gets straight to the facts about depression. It is often said that depression is a family illness because it affects not just the individual but those closest to them too. Jim and the kids maybe feel responsible and unable to help and that's been the experience in our family also. We have learned to support and just be there without taking it personally. Well done on helping to educate younger people about a subject that is too often still taboo.
