Bio: Michelle Routhieaux is the Director of Programs DBSA (Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance) in, San Diego, CA. She will tell us more about their programs and how they may be able to help with depression. DBSA programs are a peer-facilitated support group of people who support one another on their road to wellness. They include those diagnosed with mood disorders, their families and friends, and anyone else who seeks to learn more about depressive and bipolar mood (affective) disorders. Is The Holiday Season The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year? Not for many, in fact studies show that depression is more prevalent during the holiday season, this is the time that we tend to miss our beloved ones who have passed on, or have left our lives. Depression can strike at anytime and to anyone. Too many times, we have heard someone from the pulpit stating that depression is of the devil and although there is some validity to this, let’s be real, depression is a disease which cannot be prayed away. Suicide rate among Christians is increasing, but there is help. You are NOT alone. Don’t wait another moment, if you or someone you love is experiencing depression, get help now!!!
