Depression. Many have written on this topic. I write about it as an expression of care for those who have walked the long dark halls of depression. As a mental health nurse and campus minister, I have had the privilege of coming alongside those who are deeply hurting. I appreciate the ones who agreed to write part of their story as an introduction to each lesson. Although simple in its presentation, I hope and pray this study will offer the reader hope and encouragement for their journey on planet earth.
