‘Hope Prevails’ for depression

hopeDr. Michelle Bengston, a board-certified neuropsychologist, believed she was prescribing the most effective treatments for her clients who struggled with depression. But then Dr. Bengston experienced debilitating depression and discovered her treatments didn’t work.  Her determination for healing helped her find a solution for her depression.  Encouraged by those who knew her, she has blended her training and personal experience with depression and written “Hope Prevails” to help us understand depression, how it affects us spiritually and what it cannot do.

“Hope Prevails” is a much-needed book on the treatment of depression.  Dr. Bengston has given all who suffer with depression hope of true release–not just a management of symptoms.  Her transparency about her own journey and her struggle to find relief, as well as the positive results in her own life, help us all.

Each encouraging chapter offers steps called “Your Rx” to work through and gain hope for healing.  She also offers a prayer and a recommended playlist of worship songs that helped her work through her depression.

If you or someone you love suffers from depression, give them “Hope Prevails”. It will be one of the most helpful things you can do for them.  Walk with them through the book. Encourage them to do the Rx sections. They will be glad you did.
