help for the Depression & Anxiety epidemic

From Paula Kapfer

Printing a book I wrote. It's a tool for FRIENDS and FAMILY to help people they know who are depressed and anxious. Most people don't have a clue what to do with the depressed and anxious. They often make things worse.

I’m sure you know, depression and anxiety is an epidemic in our country. Yes, there is medical help,which is a huge help, but what about the practical and everyday struggles of those suffering? What about being seen? What about feeling deeply loved at one of your most vulnerable times? People who are suffering with depression and anxiety need people. They need people to  help them through this awful time. Most of the people in their lives actually need help understanding how they can help their friends and family. Most have no idea what to do.

When my daughter went through severe depression and anxiety it caused so much ache and pain for me that it sent me into my own depression. During this awful time when we were both depressed, my daughter and I noticed most people didn’t know how to interact with us or help us. They ended up acting and saying things that were so ridiculous and sometimes even hurtful. We found out who our closest friends were during these times and those who either didn’t really care or MORE IMPORTANTLY didn’t know how to properly care. Through many painful encounters with friends and family, we realized there needs to be a resource to help people who have depressed people in their lives!

The book I wrote, and my daughter illustrated, will be printed and sold throughout America through amazon and bookstores!
