From David Murray, author of Christians Get Depressed Too:

This series of films from HeadHeartHand Media presents five Christians with five very different stories of depression and of how God gave them hope and help to recover. Each 35-40 minute episode tells the story of one such Christian. Their reflections are intercut with interview footage from six counselors representing a wide range of Christian knowledge and experience. While the pain of depression is evident, the overall tone is hopeful and practical.

We’re convinced that this holistic and biblical approach to depression will equip churches to minister to depressed Christians with greater understanding, compassion, and effectiveness. The unique combination of narrative and teaching will be a great resource for any individual, family, congregation, or small group, and will serve as a helpful supplement to the book, Christians Get Depressed Too. A new film will be released every couple of weeks and we start this week with Jeni’s story.

Here is the first film:

Here are some more resources on battling depression and ministering to those who do:

For those in ministry, the writings by and about Charles Spurgeon on depression may be particularly valuable:

    Thanks for recommending this series, and I will certainly take a look. It’s encouraging that the church is beginning to face mental illness more openly. I’m surprised that you didn’t list Amy Simpson’s excellent book in your resource list, “Troubled Minds: Mental Illness and the Church’s Mission.” If the oversight is because you haven’t read it yet, let me strongly recommend it as one of the best books I’ve read in a long time on the need for the church to find better ways to help those who suffer in the community of Christ.

  3. Thank you for posting this! Another helpful resource I have found is Tommy Nelson’s article in Leadership.
    Also two recent posts from Ed Welch at the CCEF website about his experience with panic attacks.
