Dick Sederquist, author of Hiking Out, spoke with me about his lifelong depression and how he has healed from it, with self-help and the assistance of a psychiatrist and a psychologist. Now he volunteers at a medium security prison to help inmates with their depression, addiction, and the endless cycle of recidivism. Then I went into greater depth about depression, its causes, cures, risks of suicide and how to recognize the danger signs of severe suicide risk. I stressed the need to get professional help.
