Best-selling author and national radio host Stephen Arterburn knows firsthand what it means to suffer from clinical depression. In addition, he’s counseled thousands of others struggling with this affliction. On this Focus on the Family broadcast, Stephen helps listeners to better understand and assist loved ones in their healing, with a reminder that anyone can suffer bouts of depression that develop for various reasons. He cautions against offering Christian platitudes and other unhelpful comments, and to focus instead on encouraging family members and friends to be present for their struggling loved one, gently nudging them toward healthy decisions and, if necessary, professional help.
