Keeping a job while struggling to regain one’s health is one of the most difficult and delicate aspects of recovery from depression. The authors, speaking from personal experience, provide a reassuring, informative guide to dealing with depression on the job. They address questions such as:
- Should I ask my boss for time off?
- Should I tell my colleagues about my depression?
- Are my treatment records confidential?
With self-assessment tools and decision-making guidance, this book is a first-of-its-kind resource for millions of Americans faced with the hardship of holding a job while coping with depression. 300 pages. 2002. $16.00.
