    Dear MW members,
    As some of you may know, I have always been a strong advocate against the use of antidepressants for the symptoms of grief. I have always believed that grief is a natural and finite process, and that doctors are far too eager to dish out pills which are both harmful and completely unnecessary.I am enclosing a ling to a book extract, which I hope will give you a better insight into the nature of depression and the needless prescribing of anti depressants.

    Dear Kate,

    thank you so much for this. I was just pondering the other day about grief and depression, as my own grief is entering a different phase; and I do wholly agree that grief is a natural process which cannot and must not be medicated away.

    The example regarding the farmer in Cambodia was fascinating.

    I’m going to forward this link to people close to me; I believe it will help them too.

    Thank you again, and the best to you and your loved ones in 2018 and beyond.

    Polly
