Synopsis

Depression and anxiety are rampant in America. Twice as many women as men are afflicted. They suffer in silence, are misdiagnosed, or aren't even aware of their risk. Here is a bold new explanation for why women's unique brain chemistry makes them vulnerable to mood problemsand what they can do about it. Only this book details all the risk factors, including the brain's sensitivity to female hormones, life stresses, reproductive events, and a woman's genetic history.

Combining more than forty years of clinical work with their own personal experiences, the authors share a self-care program that helps the brain self-stabilize to alleviate and prevent problems. They also advocate early, customized use of medication before problems become entrenched. This powerful, proven approach is a call to awareness for women who have been trying to "be strong" for too long.

Both authors are sought-after speakers, known for their sensitive, no-nonsense presentations, guaranteed to fill the auditorium. They continue their work with women through the Hestia Institute, a collaborative practice they co-founded in Wellesley, Massachusetts.Depression and anxiety are rampant in America.
