Our plan for healing and finding wellness with depression flows from our theological reflection. First, all churches--whether they believe that members of the congregation or leadership live with depression or not--should provide education and opportunity for discussion about depression and other forms of mental illness. Second, the person living with depression must feel safe to name the disease and voice lament, and the community must be strong enough to hear this lament. Finally, the individual and her/his family must find webs of support in professional care and in the community.
