Depression: Origins, Coping Mechanisms and New Approaches for Treatment

In the past fifteen years, the number of people suffering from depression in America has nearly doubled. Suicide rates continue to rise, and the World Health Organization says depression will be the #1 disease worldwide by 2020. As more people are slipping into the darkness of despair, how can we help them start healing?

Dr. Gregg Jantz encourages us to get away from the quick-fix mentality of chemical solutions and recognize that the whole person must be healed. Focusing on emotional, environmental, relational, physical, and spiritual causes of depression, Dr. Jantz provides a model for relief that takes into consideration the uniqueness of the suffering person and helps them tailor a solution specific to their needs.
