Dealing with Depression


Depression is more than just sadness and anxiety. It is an overwhelming sense of despair - a mindset of defeat. God wants to help people step away from this darkness toward a life filled with peace and hope.

Depression and God

The Bible says that Jesus came that we "might have life, and might have it abundantly" (John 10:10, NAS). Certainly, anxiety, feelings of sadness, loneliness and other depression symptoms are not abundant life. But you can be assured, God wants you to find His peace and joy. He will help you because you are very, very important to Him. All you need is just a little help.

Explore self-help and coping resources on dealing with depression, watch video testimonies of real people who suffered from major depression and with God's help found a way to overcome it. And if you feel like that's not enough, don't hesitate to ask for help. Someone cares. Call 1-800-786-8861 and get help, advice and prayer support.
