Mental Health in the News: Faith & Spirituality Beneficial in Treatment?
Side note: that is not the reason for this post.
NAMI has a story out now that states, "A recent study published in the Journal of Affective Disorders has shown that people who believe in God are more responsive to short-term treatment of depression." I found this study fascinating and wanted to jump for joy and shout, "YES!".
Whatever your beliefs are, when I think of my beliefs and I think of God, I think of relentless faith and positivity. This is what oftentimes is void in a persons desire to cope or get better - there is no faith, nor hope.
If you're not one of those people who believe your opinions are always 100% accurate and have an open mind, please share your thoughts below. We are all different, which makes us unique and I truly understand that. However, a healthy dialogue is always welcome!
