  1. Hi Erin, thank you for your time today, this is a great talk. Several of my family members have manic depression, aka bi-polar disorder. I am looking for more recent books to learn more. There are too many options online, so can you please recommend 2 recent books, including ones that explain the science/chemistry in laymen’s terms?

    My relatives are really suffering so I am also looking for hope. If you know of any books that provide hope to families, that would also be greatly appreciated.

  2. one of the strategies you focus on is social support. i find that one of my worst symptoms of depression is intense social anxiety with feelings of discomfort around even my closest of friends, or feeling like by talking about my depression i am a dark cloud and bringing them down. do you have any suggestions for how to work these together?

  3. Hi Tal. Also wanted to follow-up with you about your question. Have you seen anything from the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance: https://www.dbsalliance.org

    They have some materials that might be helpful.

    In terms of books, here are a few suggestions…
