Books

Lost Connections, Johann Hari

Depression and anxiety are now at epidemic levels. Why? Across the world, scientists have uncovered evidence for nine different causes. Some are in our biology – but most are in the way we are living today. This New York Times best-selling book – lauded by everyone from Oprah to Elton John – offers a radical new way of thinking about this crisis. It shows that once we understand the real causes, we can turn to pioneering new solutions – ones that offer real hope.

Time to Care, Dr. Robin Youngson

In today’s beleaguered healthcare system, burdened with epidemic levels of stress, depression and burnout, Time to Care offers health professionals the opportunity of renewal. Here are the secrets to building a happy and fulfilling practice, wellbeing and resilience. Youngson bravely relates his own transition, from detached clinician to a champion for humane whole-patient care; at ties poignant, sometimes funny but always brutally honest.
