Anderson tackles the stigma associated with depression, medication and suicidal ideations. The author's mission is to bring clarity and even compassion to her readers regarding those—family members or even themselves—suffering from these conditions.


"There are various movements working to reduce the stigma of mental illness and save lives: iFRED, TWLOHA, NAMI… [However] I'm willing to become the face of female depression and be unapologetic about the role Christ has played in my healing," states the author.

Of her expertise, the author expresses: "The book is my story. I had so many questions about how I wound up in my dark place this time, and how to get out and stay out of the darkness for good. There also were questions from co-workers, friends and family. I started writing the questions down and more importantly the answers that came to me in therapy, prayer or [in] the shower."
