In this episode, Dr. Michelle Bengtson shares hope for depression. She talks about her history as a neuropsychologist, treating patients with depression for decades and thinking she was immune to it, before she endured a very bad episode of depression. She helps the listener who is asking the question, am I depressed? She discusses common signs and symptoms of depression to help the listener determine if depression might be something they or a loved one struggle with.

Dr. Bengtson combines her faith with her clinical practice. In this episode, she also shares some of the fundamental spiritual contributors to depression so that they can better understand what they are dealing with. Scripture tells us that “The thief comes only to steal, kill, and destroy, but I have come that they might have life and have it to the full” (John 10:10). When it comes to depression, the enemy steals our joy, kills our peace, and attempts to destroy our identity. In this episode, Dr. Bengtson unpacks how he does that because we can’t fight effectively unless we know what we’re fighting against.

Quotables from the episode:

By 2020, depression will be our greatest epidemic worldwide; greater than heart disease, cancer, and HIV put together.

In their lifetime, one in four will suffer from depression.

When it comes to depression, no one is immune. Not even the doctor, nor the Christian.

We can’t fight effectively unless we know what we’re fighting against.

If you or a loved one are struggling with depression, you are not alone. There is help and hope!
