I have some depressing news for you.
According to the National Institute of Mental Health, 6.7 percent of the adult population has dealt with depression. And data released by Dr. Paul Greenberg and his colleagues concludes that the number of Americans with Major Depression Disorder increased by 13 percent from 2010 to 2018, with 47 percent of adults ages 18-34 suffering from MDD.
No one questions the magnitude of the problem. The question is what to do about it. While several factors contribute to healing from depression, nothing matters more than therapy.
If you or a loved one is suffering from depression, get help. There is no reason to struggle in isolation. There have never been more quality, trained therapists than there are today.
The Bible says, “Where there is no guidance, the people fall, but in abundance of counselors there is victory” (Proverbs 11:14).
Recovery Step: If you struggle with depression, seek wise counseling.
