Navigating depression is a personal journey and involves learning what works for you. The most prevalent condition in the world today, it can be hard to find the root cause of depression—and it can manifest in many different ways. This field guide is designed to help you explore different evidence-based tools for depression that address your motivation, internal dialogue, and relationships—the areas of life that most impact your ability to thrive.
Who This Helps:
You might feel overwhelmed. Or experience a weighted sadness that's hard to define. If you don't like how you're feeling, The Field Guide for Depression is a starting point for helping to improve motivation, and mood, and build more meaningful relationships.
How It Works:
Try one or all five of the evidence-based tools that have been proven to work for depression. This journal is designed for you to discover what works for you, so there is no pressure to use the book in order. Try one journal entry, then another—read one resource, then skip to a different one. Tailor the experience to work for you. Depression is not one-size-fits-all. However, there are tools—and a combination of tools—that work effectively for alleviating it.
Once you've found that works for you, continue journaling with the tools when you need them. We provide over 80 entries in the journaling section spanning all five tools. In addition, you'll find suggested use tips so you may incorporate them into your journaling routine. Depending on the tools that resonate with you, you can continue on to seek providers or other resources that build on that framework. This step can help you get the most out of the tools that you've found most helpful for your experience of depression.
Flip to the appendices to learn more about each evidence-based tool and learn how it works. If you're ready to learn more, you can find robust educational overviews that cover each evidence-based tool featured in the book.
We included these resources to empower you with the knowledge to understand how and why these evidence-based treatments work.
