Books For Depression and Anxiety

"Can You Recommend Any Books For Depression and Anxiety?"

This question is from a Group Therapy post in our community. Add your advice in the comments!

My life is falling apart. I've been suffering from depression, severe insecurity, self-esteem issues, and anxiety for years and years. My long-term relationship is suffering, and I don't know if there is anything left of it to salvage. I've moved out and back home. While I am finally seeking professional help, I'm having to wait a month between appointments and am still waiting for a psych assessment. Can anyone relate? I'm currently seeking books and other resources that could be of help to me in between appointments. I'm looking for self-help books on depression, anxiety, and relationships or any activities or other resources I could access that might keep me sane right now.

I would say you can't go wrong with "The Happiness Project" by Gretchen Rubin. Hang in there; it will get better:)

My therapist recommended When Panic Attacks: The New, Drug-Free Anxiety Therapy That Can Change Your Life by David D. Burns M.D. I think it's pretty great!

I forgot to mention that the workbook is what my therapist recommended to me as the most effective.

Try "The Anxiety & Phobia Workbook" by Edmund J. Bourne. I also suffer from severe anxiety and moderate agoraphobia and it does help with it. I also have to wait a month between therapy appointments. It is so horrible, absolutely controls our lives. Good luck :(
