Format: Paperback
I recently received a copy of this book from one of the authors. It is not only extraordinary in its focus and scope, but exceptional in that it addresses such issues at all. The challenges of parenting are well known, but undertaking them while experiencing depression is hardly ever discussed - despite the fact that depression is one of the most common health complaints in our nation. Learning to cope with the negative emotions, and still be the best parent you can, involves recognizing behaviors and developing skills - and this book shows you how. I highly recommend this to any parent who feels the burdens of their life are impinging on their ability to parent. If you think you might need help, this is a good place to start.

From 2009: This book has a lot of good strategies and resources, but I was looking for some tiny bit of information, a few scant resources for SINGLE parents living with depression. It's a whole 'nother ball o' wax. Not to particularly malign this book - I haven't found much info anywhere about single parenting and depression.

Just wanted to update. 2014: I first reviewed this book when things were really difficult, and after a lot of work, things are good. Just a reminder that diagnoses are not life sentences as long as you realize you are the only one with your key. Other people might be able to support you, but the process is all yours, baby! That's a lot of responsibility, but it's also SO MUCH freedom. As to parenting, one of the best things I found: I got a LOT out of Slow Parenting though it did not directly focus on mental health issues. Slow Parenting Teens: How to Create a Positive, Respectful, and Fun Relationship with Your Teenager This was helpful long before we got to the teen years and was a great help to building a resilient relationship between parent and child that helped weather the tough times for all concerned.

I found this book to be extremly helpful and insightful. I am not a parent but do have a bi-polar mental illness.
The book has shown me a way to better manage my illness. Most of the chapters deal with subjects such as how to put together a self-care plan,a crisis plan (such as going into the hospital),how to make better use of finances as well as the importance of keeping a balanced life.
I believe very strongly that not only parents with a mental illness but parents without a mental illness and childless couples with or without an illness can also benefit from reading this book.
This is a must read book for anyone who wants to improve any area of their life.

I found this book to be an excellent resource for my practice as a mental health attorney. This book is written in an easy to read format with helpful pointers for parents with depression and those who work with these parents and families. In addition to its useful hints, the book also lets parents with depression and other mental health issues realize that they are not alone. I highly recommend this book to parents, families, and mental health providers.
