FREE BOOK - The Waiting Period
An inside look at depression and how a conversation can save someone's life. 
What is The Waiting Period?
It was 2008 and after a soul crushing series of calamities (my wife had left, the grandmother who raised me died suddenly, I had a devastating car crash followed by spinal cord surgery and a long recovery) I found myself in such a severe state of depression that I decided to purchase a gun to end my life. During the mandatory 10-day waiting period between purchase and being able to take possession of the firearm, I was able to come out the other side..

Based on my award winning one man show of the same name, THE WAITING PERIOD uses comedy and pathos to explore my battle with suicidal depression and the most effective way to approach the subject with a loved one or close friend. 

I want to share this message because THE WAITING PERIOD (currently playing at The Marsh in San Francisco) has literally saved lives. Suicidal people have changed their minds and sought help after seeing the show. Through my story, family members have recognized the signs of suicidal depression and ideation in their loved ones and were able to intervene before tragedy struck. I hope to reach a much larger audience with this book and have the same positive effect. 
The Waiting Period Opens Up A Conversation
My experience with suicidal depression has enabled me to start a conversation on the issue of mental illness and the stigma associated with it. It is the shame associated with this disease that’s killing people. Depressives suffer in silence with those around them often in the dark as to the extent of the pain they’re in. Too many times, loved ones don’t know how dire the situation is until it’s too late. 

I am blessed in that I have been able to talk openly about my depression. The connection I made with family and friends as the result of these discussions is what helped me move past my feelings of complete despair.

Literally hundreds of thousands of people around the world experience suicidal depression on a daily basis and some aren't going to be deterred by a ten day waiting period. The purpose of this book is to share my experience through comedy in order to liberate others so that they feel comfortable having a conversation about suicide and depression. This one man show and now for the first time, this book, is pulling suicide out of the darkness and into the light. And in the light is where we can begin healing.

Introducing The Waiting Period - Help Us Help With Depression
What People Are Saying...About "The Waiting Period"

As a minister whose ministry is focused on mental health issues, and as one of those who has lived with depression, I was deeply moved by Brian Copeland's book and play "The Waiting Period." By honestly sharing the story of a dark time in his life, he has shown us what helps - talking about it, having a loving family, helping others, religious faith. He has saved many lives by telling his story. I'm so glad California has a waiting period; the world would be a sadder place without Brian.
Rev. Barbara F. Meyers
Mental Health Community Minister
Mission Peak Unitarian Universalist Congregation

"If you’ve ever been clinically depressed, you know about the exhausting effort it takes to come off as a normal, happy person. It’s no fun to be sick inside, while faking it on the outside. I’ll bet you never would have guessed that Brian Copeland was one of these people. With his true account in his book The Waiting Period, Brian gives us a very intimate look at what he has experienced, and ultimately what he has learned and how to live with it. This book will let you know you are not alone, no matter if you yourself are depressed, or if you know someone who needs your understanding . It’s presented in a friendly, non-judgmental way, the very thing Brian does so well. The inclusion of a few short essays by other sufferers adds a bonus peek into their own private experiences. Thank you Brian, for telling your loving and important story."

                                                  - Dorothy Smith
"Parts of Copeland's new solo show may move you to tears. But much of his dense 70-minute tale of his fierce wrestle with suicidal depression is as astonishingly funny as it is brutally honest - and all of it is admirably courageous, urgent and yet charmingly told."                                            

                                                - Robert Hurwitt SF Gate
“It’s a play I’d strongly recommend to anyone who is now or has ever been depressed or who knows someone in that situation. But honestly, it’s such a strong piece that I’d recommend it just as heartily to anyone who’s ever been human.”
                                                  - Sam H. The Idiolect
