Been feeling down for a while? How do you know if just a temporary case of the blues or if you're in the grips of full-fledged depression?

It has been said that in the U. S. alone, 20 million people suffer from symptoms related to depression and that two out of three of these people are women. In recent years, the rate of depression in children has even skyrocketed.

What is behind this surge of emotional distress? Some say mental weakness, some say overexposure or overstimulation, some even say it's sin. No matter the proposed origin, there isn't often any hope offered to those who struggle with depression. 

Today, our guest, Dr. Gary Lovejoy Ph.D., co-author of the book, Light in the Darkness: Finding Hope in the Shadow of Depression, is here to offer hope. He wants to dispel some of the myths about depression that are commonly accepted.
