Fighting Back against the Challenges that Accompany Depression and Other Mental Illnesses

A memoir of hope and inspiration for those struggling with mental illness and their families.


As per the latest statistics one in five people will be affected by a mental illness. Around two hundred sixty-four million people world-wide suffer from a mental illness, and it has become a leading cause of disability. Depression accounts for a large number of these. It is important to realize that these numbers account for those who are diagnosed and does not include those who never get diagnosed.

However Laurie Jueneman is taking a stand on bridging the chasm between suffering with depression and learning to live with it in a meaningful way. Laurie thinks she was depressed long before she was ever diagnosed. She feels strongly that there is a difference between recovery and cure. Although her depression may never be cured, she has learned to live with it and live what she calls a “meaningful life.”

The book, “Climbing the Mount Everest of Depression: A Story of Hope,” Inspiration and Recovery provides the reader a glimpse of what it is like to live with a mental illness such as depression on a daily basis. In her book, she shares intimate and sensitive parts of her life which contributed to her illness and the struggles that went along with reaching a sense of recovery.

Laurie wants her readers to understand that depression is a medical illness as all mental illnesses are. She states that these illnesses affect one’s life in many ways. She shares her story to not only help those trying to live with a mental illness, but also their friends and family.

Every person has a story to tell. The more that people with a mental illness share their story, the more society will see that these people are “regular “ people trying to live “regular lives” and contribute to society in a fruitful way.
