Wrestling with Depression: A Spiritual Guide to Reclaiming Life

Wrestling with Depression: A Spiritual Guide to Reclaiming Life

To the 20 million Americans who suffer from depression, and to their families, William and Lucy Hulme bring the promise of hope and healing. Depression, they say, is the most curable of mental illnesses. Writing from his own battles with depression and his experience as a pastoral counselor, William Hulme helps depressed persons and their families understand depression and its treatments. Woven into his story are his wife Lucy's struggles as a caregiver. Her thoughts show how depression affects the whole family and how family members and friends can best help the depressed person.

In addition to medical and psychological care, the Hulmes stress the spiritual benefits of prayer and meditation.
