Through the Eyes of Depression is a book aimed at helping people to understand depression and what it is like to live with. Many books on depression only give information on what depression is and address how to manage it, but very few show what depression is really like from the viewpoint of those who live with it. To know what depression is truly like helps in understanding what someone with depression is going through. Personally I believe that when something is more understood it is far easier for people to know how to help. And for those with depression the support of others is what truly makes the difference.

This book is written entirely from the view point of those who live with depression. Every word is written by those who personally know what it is like and what has best help them. I felt this was important as instead of reading unemotional clinical research these are words from real people who have been through real experiences and can understand what you or your loved one is going through.

The book is now complete and ready for publishing. However publishing costs exceed what I am able to pay and I am looking at different avenues to raise the funds. I have heard a lot of good things about Givealittle and thought I would give it a try. All funds raised go directly towards publishing.

I personally have depression and volunteer with people who have depression. Over the years I have seen many friends and families of those who have depression struggling to understand what their loved one is going through. It is hard to understand an invisible illness and it can lead to a lot of frustration on both sides. That is why I created this book, to bring some understanding between those with depression and their loved ones.

Over the last year I have sent out inquiries to hospitals, mental health groups and community services seeing if people would be interested in contributing. The response was amazing. Over the last six months I have been writing and organizing the book which is now ready for publishing.

Funds will be paid to a verified bank account of Hayley Elliott-Kernot.
