Message from the Editor/About Us
Welcome! My name is Dr. Joanne Chao and I am a psychologist and editor of
depression-help-resource.com. Over the years, I have seen many clients suffer
from depression and the resulting need for simple, accurate information about

clients feeling ashamed, weak or thinking they're “crazy” for feeling depressed.
Many people do not seek the help they need because of these feelings or
