Living with Depression


Christian Focus 1997

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Things can't be all that bad," "pull yourself together," "snap out of it," these are some examples of a widespread misunderstanding of depressive illness. It is an ignorance found among Christians and non-Christians alike. Over recent decades the numbers of people in society suffering from depression have risen dramatically, and it is an issue which friends and relatives have often failed to understand to the detriment of their relationships. This is a state of affairs which Elaine Brown seeks to change.

The misunderstanding and stigma surrounding depressive illness makes it harder to bear for the sufferer than a physical complaint. It leaves the sufferer feeling alone and isolated in their experience. This, despite the fact that depressive illness affects so many! Elaine Brown's account of her experience is therefore such a blessing, a message of hope and re-assurance to all those engaged in such a struggle, cutting through the isolation so many experience. If you seek to help a loved one struggling with depression, you must read this book. If you are struggling with depression it's a valuable source of comfort.

Praise for the Print Edition

A brave book full of practical helps as well some very deep spiritual insights. There are not many people brave enough to write a book in such detail but Elaine's honesty and openness will bless many, as I myself have also been blessed.

—Jennifer Rees-Larcombe

Elaine Brown’s book is her personal story, majoring on how she coped with clinical depression. She does not tackle the medical issues, but rather tries to give the reader an understanding of what sufferers go through. The couple of pages of tips at the end are useful.

—Paul Cavill, NB (UCCF) Book Reviews
