About Patrick Day

I am not credentialed as a medical doctor or psychotherapist; but I am credentialed by:

  • A four-year degree in experiential depression as I lived and learned my way through four years of moderate to major depression, both situational and clinical.  By the grace of God, I am now on the other side of depression and have been so for several years.
  • During those four years and up to this present day, I have obtained the equivalent of at least a master’s degree in depression from psychiatrists, psychotherapists, counselors, spiritual guides, supportive friends, and much research on depression.
  • A member of the National Alliance for Mental Illness (NAMI).
  • I’ve taken 38 hours of course work in the concepts, assessments, tools, and planning for depression and continuing study beyond this from an organization called Bipolar in Order.
  • Finally, I have taken courses on inner healing, am involved in various depression support groups with NAMI and LinkedIn, publish this blog site, am a coach for those who are depressed, and continue to be a student of myself and the ins and outs of depression.

I have a Master’s Degree in English Literature from the University of Minnesota and have published a fictional novel called TOO LATE IN THE AFTERNOON: ONE MAN’S TRIUMPH OVER DEPRESSION, the last three words of which are the name of this blog site. This book is not an autobiography, but I know of what I write. More information about the book can be found on: www.pyramidpublishers.com and can be purchased as either a hard copy book or an ebook on www.amazon.com and other on-line book sellers.

The Lord has given me a ministry to help those who are depressed, as well as family, friends, and professionals who interact with those struggling with this affliction. As such, I am a life coach for those traveling the lonely and tumultuous journey of depression, a guide on the side so to speak. I can be contacted at pday@pjdcoaching.com.

I am  married, have two grown children, and reside in the greater Minneapolis area.

    Pat,
    Thank you for sharing your experiences. If my paltry words can be of assistance, please feel free to use them.

  2. Glad you have overcome depression. It is something that has followed me around most of my life but at the moment I am in remission!
