Depression is an illness that requires treatment. With the right treatment, people dealing with this illness can do very well. In addition to medical treatment, support from family members, friends and faith communities who walk with the person experiencing depression can be helpful. Emotional and practical care and support can, at times, go a long way in instilling hope and giving people the strength to bear the burden of their depression.
Supporting someone while they recover from depression is a great privilege. This book is packed with medical information, insight and strategies to help people who are living with depression; it also offers guidance to Christians of all traditions who seek to provide practical and spiritual care for people with depression.Adrian Treloar
