5.0 out of 5 stars I'm a Witness..
A book worth reading...For any woman who thinks she's losing her mind, going crazy, or just can't figure out what's wrong, this is the book for you. Before reading "Can I Get A Witness", I thought I was the only woman living on DEPRESSION island. The author wrote of her own experience and that made me feel like I was sitting and talking with my girlfriends,...

3.0 out of 5 stars Practical
This book offered practical advice for women concerning depression, the symptoms, and the treatments, but I found it difficult to just sit down and read straight through this book. I was able to skim through it and pick out information, but I believe that Sisters of the Yam and Willow Weep for Me were easier to read and offered advice in a contextual form.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm a Witness.., May 12, 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Can I Get a Witness?: Black Women and Depression (Paperback)
A book worth reading...For any woman who thinks she's losing her mind, going crazy, or just can't figure out what's wrong, this is the book for you. Before reading "Can I Get A Witness", I thought I was the only woman living on DEPRESSION island. The author wrote of her own experience and that made me feel like I was sitting and talking with my girlfriends, instead of reading a book written by a therapist. The other women's stories were deeply personal and helpful. While reading, I felt like Dr. Boyd had put all my thoughts down on paper. Finally, someone knew what I was feeling....I had been planning on seeing a doctor but I was too embarrassed and ashamed. I know longer feel that way.

4.0 out of 5 stars The truth about Black women and Depression., November 27, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Can I Get a Witness?: Black Women and Depression (Paperback)
It's about time someone talked about it, instead of sweeping it under the rug, as it was seldomly done in the past.
