Almost 40 percent of the U.S. population suffers from some form of depression or mental illness yet the causes of mental illness remain largely a mystery. The prevailing theory sees the cause as a trans-generational genetic defect of brain chemistry, which is best treated with medication. New breakthroughs made by health professionals dislodge this theory, and show that frequently previous traumas are what lead to mental illness. In this bold new book, renowned physician and psychotherapist Charles Whitfield takes a new look at the common problems of depression, anxiety, addictions, eating disorders, schizophrenia and other mental illness. The Truth About Depression shows the strong and at times causal relationship between childhood trauma and future depression and other mental illness; he explores the risks, side-effects and high cost of treating these disorders with anti-depressant drugs, and; provides an alternative treatment and recovery program for people with depression and a history of childhood trauma. Dr. Whitfield's book offers hope and help for those who have been held hostage by depression, and provides clinicians with new solutions and alternatives to high-risk medications.

Had my health begun to deteriorate due to a physical condition, or were the effects of depression and anxiety taking a devastating toll on my life? Whatever the source of this bewildering predicament, my family and I were suffering from the perilous grip of a living hell. A darkness and unexplainable strangeness had managed to sew its way into my very being that unfortunately had affected everyone I loved, in a way that I wouldnt wish upon my worst enemy. Each day, I fell deeper and deeper into a mysterious abyss of despair that I could not seem to escape; rather, I became captive within my own consciousness. It wasnt until I finally surrendered to the truth that I was able to slowly liberate my mind, body and soul from the hopelessness and anguish I was experiencing, and gradually reacquaint myself to the real world. This is my story, something that happened to me. Realizing that there are countless others who are at present encountering situations similar to my own experiences, it is my desire to shed some light from the knowledge I obtained along my journey to recovery, in hope of possibly guiding another lost soul to discover his or her way home. - JB Dums
