A reading list on depression

At the Independent Alice-Azania Jarvis came up with a reading list on depression.

The memoir on the list:
Shoot the Damn Dog: A Memoir of Depression

Founding editor of Elle, Sally Brampton had a lot to be happy about: a high-flying career, a family and home. But a string of events – a divorce, a move and a thyroid problem – saw her mood plummet. In this lucid account of 21st-century depression, she recalls how she attempted suicide and how she recovers her health thanks to therapy and support from friends.
Read about the other entries on the list.
