•••••
Through the power of story, nationally recognized journalist Jane Clayson Johnson shines a light on the desperate, dark, and lonely reality faced by those who struggle with clinical depression. At once hopeful and heart-wrenching, Silent Souls Weeping examines the stigma and isolation associated with depression, as well as the dangers of perfectionistic tendencies and suicidal ideation.

Beginning with an open and frank exploration of her own experience with clinical depression, the author goes on to share stories gathered from interviews with more than 150 men, women, and teens all members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints who have suffered from depression.

Within these stories is a plea to change the dialogue surrounding depression, particularly among Latter-day Saints, who face unique struggles as they try to fit a disease manifest through sorrow into a religion centered on a "plan of happiness."

"The worst part of depression," writes the author, "is the profound isolation it engenders, not just from the Spirit but from family, friends, and community." Sharing our stories is the first step toward ending that isolation. This important book opens the door for a new level of honesty and helpfulness, both for those who suffer from depression and for their family members, friends, and Church leaders

Silent Souls Weeping, by Jane Clayson Johnson, had me from Page 1. I have never read something this informative about depression and everything that goes along with it. Jane Clayon Johnson shares not only her personal experiences, but also opens the door and gives you great insight on all forms of depression. I never before realized the isolation that these individuals experience on a daily basis. Reading the different struggles that they go through awakened in me a desire to know and learn more. The statement, “Depression is a disease not a spiritual deficit,” has stuck in my head since I first read it. As a leader in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, it has made me more aware of other other individuals feelings. It has given me a desire to listen more, judge less and be more supportive and understanding of those who might be suffering from depression. Jane takes you on an amazing journey filled with hope and love. I was truly moved to tears by several of the stories where they shared their struggles and experiences and how they found hope. I commend these individuals that had the courage to share their personal stories. Well done Jane, this is a truly remarkable book filled with informative and moving experiences that touch your heart and leave you wanting to know more. I would recommend this book to everyone I know, whether you are struggling with this disease or know someone who has it - this is a great tool for helping others.

This book is a huge resource of information on depression, its signs, and different forms. I have more compassion for those who struggle with depression after reading this. It was also eye opening as I realized that symptoms that I experienced after having babies were actually signs of post partum depression. Great and much needed book!
