If you are one of the many people suffering from depression, there is hope and there is help-a way up when you are down. Even if you don't feel like doing anything, this booklet provides manageable steps for getting started on the path that leads out of depression.

Edward T. Welch helps us understand the spiritual issues involved, whether one's depression is caused by physical problems or results in them. Getting to the heart of what depression says and means, Welch guides us through a process of dealing with depression biblically and effectively.

get multiple copies for your counselees

Depression seems to run in families. I don't want to debate nature verses nurture but it is rare that a counselee is the only one in their family struggling. They are often the only ones seeking help from a Christian counselor, however. So this is a booklet that seems to get borrowed a lot. From now on I'm going to give counselees two copies with part of their homework later in our time together being to give it to someone else in their family and talk through it with them after they have both read it. I have one young woman who is almost completely confined to her bed with health issues but is having a ministry to her extended family by having copies of this booklet walk off her bed stand. Great way to have her reach out to others when she feels so isolated much of the time.
