Key Ideas

1.      Definition of Depression: “a sorrow that causes you to turn inward.”

2.     Depression is not a battle to be fought alone.   One theological and practical way to help is lending your faith.

3.     Key to recovery – restoring the struggling person’s hope in God.

4.     Recovery has begun as you see the person turn outward (to others) and upward (to God), not inward (to self).  

5.     Medicine can help, but it should never be a replacement for genuine “heart” work.
