7 Books That Can Help Black Women Deal With Depression

blackpainpic4Black Pain: It Just Looks Like We’re Not Hurting’

Terrie M. Williams, one of the nation’s leading public relations experts, has written the definitive book on depression in the Black community. As she managed A-list clients like Eddie Murphy and Miles Davis, Williams dealt with dysthymia, a mild but long-term form of depression. Her book is essential to dealing with the truth about the issue that a large percentage of African-Americans face daily. It is a guide to finding relief through faith, therapy, diet and exercise, as well as through building a supportive network and eliminating toxic people. “Black Pain” identifies emotional pain — which uniquely and profoundly affects the Black experience — as the root of lashing out through desperate acts of crime, violence, drug and alcohol abuse, eating disorders, workaholism, and addiction to shopping, gambling and sex. Few realize these destructive acts are symptoms of inner sorrow.

Her book is a blueprint for understanding and overcoming anxiety from a psychological, spiritual and Black perspective.

    I had been suffering because of depression for a long time after divorce and one day I realized how close to suicide I was…
    But then I reversed my behaviour with an anti-depression system (I wrote my full story in my FB account, hope this help), and now I am a happy woman always in a good mood =).

    Managing depression can be difficult. EMpowerplus goes right for the source of the problem, and doesn't try to cover them up like most things. Tons of people swear by it! Take a look at their site.
