The Hilarious World of Depression

by John Moe Author

Based on the podcast from acclaimed radio personality John Moe, The Hilarious World of Depression traces Moe's mental health journey in the wake of his brother's death by suicide in 2007. Noticing patterns, coping mechanisms, and behaviors in his own life, Moe began to come to terms with his own depression and to talk more openly about the mental health struggles that millions face, especially in this age where more and more people are being diagnosed with depression and anxiety. This book offers the reader an in depth exploration of the disease, and seeks to foster dialogue around a difficult and sometimes taboo topic. Moe draws out common themes and experiences in depression, from struggles around identity, self-medication, work-life balance, the impact of depression on loved ones, and depression's hereditary aspects. A powerful (and entertaining!) book, anyone who suffers from depression or knows someone who does will get a lot out of this book.
