Christians Suffer Depression Too and That’s Okay – Part 2

Christians and Depression
Depression

Christians are human just like everyone else. They experience life just like everyone else. The only difference between someone who is following God/Jesus Christ and someone who is not, is that they are depending on something Greater than themselves. But this doesn’t mean that depression, anxiety, alcohol addiction, or other mental health challenges will never occur.

This article will highlight 5 things I think Christians should do to rebound from a negative experience. 

Christians are an interesting special population. They are special for more reasons than one. But the most important characteristic of the Christian community is that they strive, everyday, to allow God to work through them. They are surrendering their heart, soul, and mind to God so that He may use them in special ways. But is God using those who make others in the Christian community feel ousted, abandoned, or unloved? I would venture to guess not. In fact, Jesus said:

“I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me – just as the Father knows me and I know the Father….” (St. John 10:14-15).

The “sheep” do not oust others, hurt them, or abandon them because they are experiencing life in painful ways.

I offer some tips on how Christian sufferers can rebound and find their faith again. I look forward to your comments, questions, and shared experiences.

   
As always, I wish you well

*CORONA VIRUS UPDATE1050 Lincoln Way, Ste 1 - Pittsburgh PA

As we get closer to the middle of May states across the nation are passing laws, reducing restrictions, and enacting new regulations to help support the transition from stay-at-home orders to the normal flow of life again.

Unfortunately, Gov. Wolf hasn't reduced the mask wearing restrictions in Allegheny County. However, he has announced most of Western PA will be moving to the yellow phase beginning May 15. This means that we can slowly regain some normalcy.

But until the mask wearing restrictions are reduced or eliminated Anchored Child & Family Counseling will remain closed. I will be making small transitions back to the office over the course of summer and seeing some clients in-person based on need.The office will be open starting June 17, 2020 with the goal of remaining open until/if state laws change in response to Corona virus restrictions.

In the meantime, I will be continuing teletherapy sessions until mid-June. My office assistant and I will be monitoring your insurance policy to ensure that you will be covered for teletherapy and that your copayments will be waived. At this time, it appears that all major insurance companies (UPMC, Highmark, Aetna, Optum/United, and Cigna) are continuing to provide coverage for teletherapy.

Please check www.anchoredinknowledge.com (the practice website) for updates and my business facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/anchoredchild.

Please continue to stay safe!
Thank you
