The Depressor

    (Being, 1995)
™ and ©1995 Humanity™ Inc.

The Depressor is a book with a purpose. The writer, Anthony Masino, uses super-heroes as a metaphor for depression and how to beat it. The Depressor stalks a young boy, but, instead of physically harming him, he showers him with a continuous blast of confidence-breaking slander. Just when the boy is about to slip into depression, he is saved by Catharsis. These battles take place in the boy’s mind and go on and on in an attempt to show that beating depression is a long and hard battle. It takes a strong person to bounce back.

This title is one of many mental health-oriented books published by Humanity Inc. in 1995. It includes an introduction on depression by Andrew Berger, Ph.D., ABPP.
