Start to make sense of how you feel, and find hope that change is possible
Depression touches the lives of so many people, yet it is often feared, ignored or misunderstood.
Combining knowledge of individual experience, psychological research and professional practice, this book seeks to bring understanding and offer support and help to both sufferers and carers.
Issues covered include:
- Recognising signs and symptoms
- Exploding myths about depression
- How depression speaks into and about our faith
- Finding hope for climbing out of the darkness.
The authors offer a holistic and God-centred approach to moving through and beyond depression, combining "warmth and reassurance with practical suggestions and sane biblical insight" (from Foreword by Adrian Plass).
