The Other Side of Silence: A Psychiatrist’s Memoir of Depression

by Linda Gask

Having spent her life trying to patch up the souls of others, psychiatrist Linda Gask came to realise that being an expert in depression didn’t confer any immunity from it – she had to learn to take care of herself, too. She sets out to convey how it truly feels to experience this devastating illness, what psychotherapy is about, and the role of medication – and provides hope for those who suffer from depression and their loved ones whilst busting the stigma of mental illness.
