I see that SAMBS (a member) recently recommended Jim Phelps MD's excellent site on depression. I have also fond this an excellent site and have recommened it in the past. She also recommends the excellent drugs.com forum.
psycheducation.org/ - an excellent source of information for depression and how we can help ourselves!
These sites indicate to my mind that the Americans are well ahead of the UK in attitudes to, and knowledge about depression. Uk medicine is also excellent but lagging in this area of medicine.
Mind you as Jim Phelps admits so often there is still a lot the Americans and we do not understand about this condition , but there is a lot of good advice around about how to live successfully with it.
