In the UK a suicide occurs approximately every two hours, and The Samaritans answer one telephone call every 12 seconds. Drawing on The Samaritans' 40 years of experience, this book offers self-help strategies for coping with depressive states and aims to bring hope to the lives of the mentally ill and the despairing, as well as their friends and families. Published to coincide with Depression Week, it is about dealing with depression, coping with feelings of despair and loneliness, listening to oneself - or The Samaritans - and keeping feelings of suicide at bay.
