Depression is a common and a serious medical illness. It is real, it happens, and it is treatable. Society has put a stigma on mental illness and as the salt and light of the world we must put an end to that stigma. It is normal for children to feel sad, irritated, and have bad mood swings, but when those negative feelings linger it is possible that the child is struggling with depression. So how do we help children and families when they encounter depression?
Join us as Eliette Vrenelli shares thoughts, ideas, and strategies for helping children and families confront the challenges of depression, biblically and thoughtfully.
