Hope for Depression

Depression is frequently an underlying issue of eating disorders. Depression can feel like wading through mud just to get through a normal day of life. If you feel depressed, you may want to consider a great Christian book on depression, written by one of Eating Disorder Hope's favorite authors: Moving Beyond Depression @ Dr. Greggory Jantz.

Moving Beyond Depression

By Dr. Gregory L. Jantz with Ann McMurray @

In the past, people who arrived at the crossroad of depression had only two escape routes: they could “get-over-it” or “medicate it.” If neither of these paths effectively led to recovery, the person stayed on a dead-end path indefinitely. At some point, the frustration caused some sufferers to leave the path of life altogether. Is it any wonder new answers for depression are needed?

People arrive at the point of depression from many different places, indicating a variety of paths to recovery. In short, there is no one answer for depression and no single path to recovery. Just as the reasons for depression are as varied as the individuals who suffer from it, the paths to recovery will also be unique to each individual.

Not every person suffering from depression should be medicated.
Not every person who has a bad day is depressed.
Not every person who struggles over meaning and purpose in life should be viewed as “crazy.”
Not every person is able to bounce back from a major traumatic event without assistance.

In order to deal with an individual’s depression, his or her uniqueness, his or her story, must be heard, understood, and integrated into a personalized recovery.
