Those of you who have read Rise from Darkness, or have been reading my earlier blog posts, will know that as a teenager and student I suffered from deep depression for a decade. During my recovery period I found that I had to reinvent the wheel, as nobody could give me guidance on what works and what does not work when fighting depression. I read a large number of books on the subject, and experimented with many different measures and techniques. My first book was one of the results of my quest; the main result was that I am now completely recovered from the illness.

I’m currently working on a second book on the topic, which is more specifically a 14-step program which uses techniques and measures from many different directions.

In parallel with writing this second book, I am making a complete program for overcoming depression, called Exit Depression. It is based on the same methodology as the book. The Exit Depression program will also be made as a series of Youtube videos, and you will find the first below. The entire program can be found under the Exit Depression page on

I recommend watching and following the instructions of one video per week. All you need is some time and effort, and a notebook to take notes.

The program is under development, but when it’s complete, it will consist of at least 15 videos.
