  1. Emotional
  2. Intellectual
  3. Relational
  4. Physical

Featuring helpful checklists and research in an easy-to-read format, Jantz's Five Keys to Dealing with Depression doesn't just manage symptoms. It equips you with the tools and God's truth to care for the whole person.

There are thousands of books on depression. But oftentimes they give very general recommendations that don't apply to everyone and ignore the spiritual aspects of a person.

... I saw a one-size-fits-all answer given to depressed people. They were told they had nothing to be depressed about and to 'just get over it.' --Dr. Gregory Jantz

Imagine having a book that pulls from Scripture and science that speaks to the whole person, showing them how to be restored emotionally, intellectually, relationally, physically, and spiritually.

Depression is so much more than negative feelings or emotions. Learning to identify various sources of stress and imbalance is key to finding freedom from depression.

1. Emotional Balance

In depression, events can often trigger opposing emotions: a promotion may produce thoughts of despair and fear. People who are depressed find it much easier to feel negatively. 5 Keys to Dealing with Depression walks you through the ways fear, anger, and guilt can cause depression and provides step-by-step methods to overcome emotional imbalance--

  1. Recognize, Promote, and Sustain Positive Emotions
  2. Identify Negative and Positive Self-Talk
  3. Learn to Choose Your Attitude and much more
2. Intellectual Integrity

Fighting depression can cause a person to know they're not good enough, or know they don't deserve to be happy. 5 Keys to Dealing with Depression will help you recognize these false truths and half-truths that can overwhelm even the best of us.

3. Relational Support

Family and those we surround ourselves with tell us about our place in the world. Negative experiences, especially from childhood, can create patterns of negative self-talk or abusive relationships. Follow the 5 steps to dealing with false perceptions and learn to change your self-talk and set healthy relational boundaries with other people.

4. Physical Healing

Feeling depressed is not just a mental state. Depression is a destructive whole-body condition that must be addressed physically as well as mentally. The body holds its own special key to overcoming depression. Get practical tips and advice that covers--

  • Medical and Health Conditions (including heart disease, diabetes, heredity, etc.)
  • Environmental Factors (including lead, mercury, organic solvents, etc.)
  • Self-Induced Substances (including caffeine, alcohol, certain medications, etc.)

5 Keys to Dealing with Depression also includes helpful tips on eating healthier, drinking enough water, exercise, nutritional support, and restful sleep that can dramatically improve your health.

5. Spiritual Support
