0 - Paperback

Millions of people worldwide are coping with depression. In this bundle of her two books to date, JoEllen Notte shares practical tips and real-life experiences of depression. Informed by interviews with over 200 people, The Monster Under the Bed is a practical exploration of how to navigate sex and relationships while coping with depression, and In It Together is an insightful and much-needed guidebook for people with depression and those who love them.

Since 2012, JoEllen Notte has written about sex, mental health and how none of us are broken on her award-winning site The Redhead Bedhead.

Contributor Website

“JoEllen Notte began an important conversation about mental health and sexual health when practically no one was talking about it. She has led the way in expanding public dialogues about the intersection of these very important issues with her thoughtful writing and presentations based on her groundbreaking original research. JoEllen dared to speak about a topic no one else would and has changed the way we think about sex and depression. Her work is, quite simply, invaluable."

- Tristan Taormino, sex educator, host of Sex Out Loud Radio, and author of Opening Up

“In It Together is a loving, transparent book that gave me skills to meet my loved ones halfway, in a healthy place. So many of us are managing depression, so how do we stay good to each other when we all have needs? JoEllen writes like a friend, vilifies no one, and focuses on how we can give ourselves a break. It’s an incredible guide for better relationships. I want to buy a copy for everyone I know.

Am I allowed to say I laughed and had so much fun reading about depression? Read this book and you’ll feel seen — and you’ll walk away with a real-life guide to helping loved ones without sacrificing your own mental health.”

- Meredith Goldstein, Boston Globe Love Letters advice columnist, podcast host and author of Can’t Help Myself

“There is undeniably no one else writing about the effects of depression on relationships with such a depth of understanding and perspicuity than JoEllen Notte. A trailblazer in the world of mental health advocacy, JoEllen expertly shepherds us past the isolating and confusing world depression inhabits within our loved ones. This is an empathetic manual on how to create and maintain loving, supportive, healthy relationships.” - Elle Chase, author of Curvy Girl Sex: 101 Body-Positive Positions to Empower Your Sex Life

“In It Together is a must-read for anyone who loves someone with mental illness. This easy-to-read handbook for how to show you care about someone with depression is overflowing with honesty, concrete suggestions, and outright hope. JoEllen writes with unquestionable authority on the subject, both as someone who has surveyed and interviewed hundreds of people with depression, and also as someone who has wrestled tenaciously with the voices in her own head. Through personal stories, forthright suggestions, and even 'cheat sheets,' she lays out a vision for what healthy, productive relationships might look like, and also provides specific steps for how to get there. If you have a loved one with depression, you may often find yourself asking what to do, what to say, and how to help. In It Together is a powerful, timely and helpful answer to these questions.”

- Michael J. Scholtes, author of Darkwater: A Pastor's Memoir of Depression and Faith

“In It Together is a must-have resource for anyone experiencing depression and for the people who love someone struggling with depression. JoEllen Notte does an amazing job of challenging common misconceptions about mental illness, uncovering the obstacles in the ways of helping those in need of support for their depression, and offering numerous practical tools for how to get on the same teams with someone coping with depression. There’s even a cheat sheet (which is really an entire chapter) on what to say and not say when communicating with a loved one going through depression. JoEllen Notte takes on a difficult and often avoided topic with practical wisdom, candor, and humor. I highly recommend this book!”

- Jessica Fern, Author of Polysecure: Attachment, Trauma and Consensual Nonmonogamy

“Like most people, I'm really uncomfortable talking about any mental health issues, let alone my own. Which is exactly what JoEllen Notte's new book, The Monster Under the Bed: Sex, Depression, and the Conversations We Aren’t Having, is about. Don’t let the title fool you though. Yes, the book is the intersection of sex and depression, but JoEllen has so many good points to make about depression and general, that I think everyone should read it.”
