It scares people — both those who are not suicidal, and those who are. When I am suicidal or have suicidal ideation, as it is more benignly phrased by psychiatrists although it all comes down to the same thing; you want to die I call a friend, who I met in the loony bin, ten years ago.

A successful magazine editor and prize-winning journalist, Sally Brampton launched Elle magazine in the UK in But behind the successful, glamorous career was a story that many of her friends and colleagues knew nothing about—her ongoing struggle with severe depression and alcoholism. Brampton’s is a candid, tremendously honest telling of how she was finally able to “address the elephant in the room,” and of a culture that sends the overriding message that people who suffer from depression are somehow responsible for their own illness.

She offers readers a unique perspective of depression from the inside that is at times wrenching, but ultimately inspirational, as it charts her own coming back to life.
