Depression is one of the worst afflictions. It creeps up and messes with your own mind, promoting panic, inaction, fear and passivity in people who are not naturally this way.
Unfortunately, when I think back on the colleagues of mine who have struggled with bouts of depression, I think of people who spent a lot of time being told that they had a problem, without much in the way of a solution.
One of the reasons I am a supporter of Wayne’s work – on this web site and in the Anti-Depression Association of Australia – is that the Fountainhead Method he promotes is concerned with using one’s own mind to take back control of oneself.
Sounds simplistic? Well, it’s not simple but it is highly effective for most people.
Just as there are many stages and types of disease, so there are different types and severity of depression. I have seen amazing results from Wayne’s work where sufferers take back control of their own lives.
Because of my business background, I’m always focused on what works and what doesn’t. That’s why I like the ADAA and this site. It’s focusing on practical solutions to this problem.
