This user’s guide begins with the thought, “You need to be crazy to stay sane in a crazy world,” the author immediately begins explaining his self-help information. He lists ways to help yourself that are mostly free. He also describes what people think will bring them happiness that do not necessarily help, such as material objects. The author is a universal world citizen, citing how major religions view depression.
The first part of the book is short, clear, and concise. A more philosophical discussion follows later in the book detailing the specific aspects of depression, examples of people who exhibited them, and how the people became better.
The stories are easy to relate to as the writing is conversational and kind.
 Facts about sleep are detailed, as sleep can be a problem in depression. Dr. Rich says too much or too little sleep can both be a problem. Relaxation, meditation, mindfulness, and flow theory are also covered.
Throughout the book, links to further explanation are provided which are usually on Dr. Bob Rich’s website. In the Kindle version, a person can just click the links to easily find more discussion on the topics. He also recommends several books that will help most people. He suggests some people might benefit from in-short-term person counseling, as well.

Will You Be There When it Counts?

"Being There When It Counts" is what Disaster Mental Health Services (DMHS) teams try
hardest to achieve before, during and following disasters, critical incidents, crises, and terrorist
activities. Although a relatively new field, these teams have quickly become an integral
part of disaster and critical incident preparedness, mitigation, response, and follow-up. DMHS
began with Critical Incident Stress Debriefing and Critical Incident Stress Management. In
order to continue to grow and meet identified needs, both continued development as well as
focused research. Research will help identify how Mental Health Services can best be utilized
as well as how relevant changes need to be made in practice. Networking and sharing experiences
can also help develop resources. The 8th Rocky Mountain Region Disaster Mental
Health Conference was held Nov. 7-9, 2009 in Cheyenne, Wyoming. This volume highlights key
papers from presenters.

Praise for The Proceedings of the Rocky Mountain Region Disaster Mental Health Conference

"...A must have for first responders and mental health professionals. Addressing the needs of people who work in these fields is critical. The better trained they are to be emotionally equipped for disasters, the
better they can help others. I think that the pages of information covered in this book will be
some of the most important information needed by people in this field today."
--Page Lovitt, Reader Views

"This compilation of papers deals with people's reactions to a wide variety of disasters,
including not only terror and Hurricane Katrina, but child abuse and the trauma suffered by
families of service members. Taken together, the papers are fascinating. The "Proceedings of the
5th Rocky Mountain Region Disaster Mental Health Conference" provides insight into the nature
of the individual's response to terror and disaster. They should be interesting reading for
everyone who either indirectly or directly has been affected."
--Linda Benninghoff, author of Departures
