Anxiety and depression and various treatments for these conditions have long been subjects for discussion among mental health care providers, especially where the use of medications are concerned. I remember as a young mother suffering from what I now recognize as post partum depression, I was told by a psychiatrist that pharmaceuticals were making talk therapy obsolete, and that psychiatrists would be soon be putting psychologists out of business. Following his advice I began taking an antidepressant, and while it was helpful, there were certainly other interventions that also assisted in my ascension out of the temporary darkness I found myself in. The year was 1986 and a quarter of a century later, my journey has been a roller coaster ride, having many twists and turns, ups and downs, and, and when I was introduced to Jasenn Zaejian’s eBook, I was more than willing to see where it would take me.

Healing Personal Depression And Anxiety For Good: The Only Self-Help Solution You’ll Ever Need is a well organized and educational book, composed of ten chapters with an impressive list of references that allow the reader to delve further into personal areas of interest. Following an introduction that discusses how problems in our interpersonal relationships can lead to depression and anxiety, and how many other factors play a part in mental health, this book is neatly organized into short chapters that contain practical exercises as well as some theoretical information that is explained in an understandable manner. I appreciated Zaejian’s approach to readers who are in need of immediate relief from their symptoms without glossing over the science behind the exercises that are recommended.

Having never read a book in this format before, I was challenged by not having a hard copy to flip through and in fact found it necessary to print the volume to make for easy reading. However, I soon found advantages to the eBook, which the author makes good use of, and used the technology available to me from having the book on my laptop as well. There are hyperlinks throughout each chapter that, when clicked on, lead the reader to websites, articles and videos that give greater detail to the subjects presented. I found myself researching more about many of the topics presented in the book, which gave me a larger knowledge base to draw from. This gave me the sense that the author really cared about his readers, and wished to empower them, because he was going above and beyond to share his own knowledge and experience and that of the many experts referenced.

Chapter One is titled Sad Numbers. In this introductory chapter, Zaejian presents statistical information regarding the increase in the numbers of individuals who are affected by depression and anxiety. He makes it a point to discuss the rise of these conditions among the military population. Combat stress and its association with depression, suicide, and post traumatic stress reactions are discussed. Energy related depression, the effects of social-economic circumstances, and bereavement are also addressed in this chapter...."
