Can Christians Be Depressed?
Matthew Stanford, author of the book, "Grace for the Afflicted," talks about the silent epidemic of depression that is sweeping across the U.S., affecting 45 million people, many of whom get no treatment. Medication is often over prescribed, and mental health issues have been turned over to the world, when clergy could be a real help to the hurting if they were trained. Stanford shares his concerns about children being treated for ADHD, and encourages those struggling with depression to seek out a faith-based, ethical psychologist.
